CD/DVD Not Working after Windows 7 Upgrade

I have just installed windows 7 on my laptop. Actually previously I was using windows xp. When I insert my cd in the DVD drive it was not working. Previously it was working fine but now there is a problem now it is not responding. And now I am not able to open the tray with the switch nor will it eject from the explorer pull down menu. But when I have open drive list and in the Device list and says it's working properly. and when I tried to test it using the Toshiba PC diagnostics tool but it simply shows "skip" for the tests of the CD drive. I am not sure whether it is a driver problem or something else. I don't want to send it in to the Repair Depot because they just took a month to repair the DC input jack. So can any one here who know the solution of it.

Re: CD/DVD Not Working after Windows 7 Upgrade

Ok I get your problem. You do as I said to you. You just turn the system off, unplug the ac adapter, remove the battery, then press the power button and hold it down for a minimum of 30 seconds. Replace the battery, plug the AC back in, start the system and go immediately into the bios to see if it is recognized there or not. Let us know what happens after you do this.

I have tried your post on my pc and I am very happy because now it works. Must be something in the BIOS needs to be recognized from a cold boot. And I think I will post on forum regarding this. Actually I want solution on it. But really friend thanks one more time.

Re: CD/DVD Not Working after Windows 7 Upgrade

same days back I was facing this but once I have installed windows 7 and running then this problem didn't happen any more. Actually on my computer it it corrects a lot of problems like this on laptops and desktops. It's one of the first things I try when things start screwing up. So whoever get this problem I think they have to try this. I think it surely fix there problem.
