OK here is the symptoms. It just started one day.
1. It will not open when i push the button. Not even the light blinks.
2. If i open it the other way (Paper clip in hole) and put a cd or dvd in it doesn't do a thing. No spin and no light.
3. If i uninstall it, and reboot, it sees it and installs drivers for it. Also it sees it in bios.
Is it now a useless piece of plastic or can it be something else? hate to buy a new one and this one be another problem. Suggestions?
