I have Aspire 7720 with Windows 7 (Upgraded from Vista). The computer is not recognizing my DVD/CD Drive while in windows (DVD/CD drive doesn't show in Device Manager but it blinks and works for a couple of seconds during bootup but doesn't boot from CD).
What I already tried:
- Registry fix (remove Upperfilter and Lowerfilter)
- Ran registry scan/fix program
- Ran Microsoft Fixit
- Opened laptop and removed and then reattached DVD/CD drive
What I found out:
- Computer boots faster and doesn't heat that much if DVD/CD drive is not connected
PS: This is the original CD/DVD drive that came with the laptop. I don't know the brand or model number of my DVD/CD drive since it doesn't show up in device manager. Also there are no DVD/CD drivers on Aspire website.
Any suggestion is appreciated.
