Make: HP Model: dv6500 OS: Windows Vista
Hello everyone. I have a Vista computer in my hands with a funky dvd drive. It's not showing up in Vista(My computer/Device Mgr) and when I try to boot off of it from the BIOS it skips it. I'm guessing the BIOS doesn't detect it either.
It all started with some viruses. Removed em for the most part, but there is something that's not letting me browse the internet. Loopback test comes back successfully and I can ping servers just fine.
When I tried to resolve the issue by re-installing Windows I came to a bigger one. The DVD drive. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated guys!
Here is what I have done so far:
1) Restore BIOS defaults
2) System Restore
4) Event Viewer (These are some of the best I picked out)
- ID: 6 = "ACPI BIOS does not contain an IRQ for the device in PCI slot 13..."
- ID: 7000 = "The Parrallel port driver service failed to start..."
- ID: 7026 = "The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: cdrom
