Re: Cannot Detect CD-ROM in Bios
I work as a computer repair tech and i’ve noticed a recurring problem with cd/dvd drives in Windows XP and Vista disappearing from the my computer menu. Now rather than to restore the OS, wasting time hunting down drivers, or replace the drive you can try to fix the problem by editing the registry keys.
1. In XP just go to start run and type in “regedit” and in Vista just type “regedit” in the search box.
2. From there maximize the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINES
Now look in the right panel and find “Upperfilter” and “Lowerfilter”, click on each “filter” and hit the delete key. You will be prompted after each filter to confirm, just hit yes and then restart the computer after both filters have been successfully removed.
