|I have an Acer 7520 laptop which has an Optiarc DVD-RW drive. It had never caused problems but one day randomly it wasn't showing in 'Computer' in Windows. So I checked in Device Manager, nothing there either, so I assumed it wasn't being seen by the BIOS either.|
Sure enough I rebooted my laptop and on the POST screen where the detected drives are listed, there is now only my 2 hard drives - going into the BIOS shows "Optical drive: NONE"
I've tried removing and reseating the drive to no avail. I don't want to buy a new drive in case it's the laptop that's faulty. Could anyone offer some advice or ideas?
