|OK maybe we slipped up this time but something like "My CD drive is not visible in BIOS (see original question) can someone help with that?" would have been a less jarring response. Bear in mind that this service is given for free by volunteers in their own spare time.|
Most likely the CD drive has failed, its connections have worked loose or one of its two cables are faulty. BIOS is too far down the chain for it to be much else. Hardware is where you need to look for this issue, including BIOS itself although I regard the latter as less likely.
Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
