I'm trying to get an old Time Cybernote 953E laptop working. My biggest problem seems to be the CD drive. It does not appear in my computer or in the hardware manager and when I enter the bios at startup it is not one of the devices listed. It does however have power and spins up cds when one is put in.
If it makes any difference it is a cd drive that clicks out and can be replaced with a battery.
This all means I can't (or daren't) format to reinstall windows because I can't access the windows cd
If anyone has any clues to what the problem may be or any solutions I'd be very grateful
