Symptoms: After Depressing F1 Key Normal System behavior Follows. Discs will not AutoRun. CD-RW Drive (D:) Shows up on My Computer Sys Folder. Device Mngr. Shows HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8483B is Present and that device is working properly. Cable Connector Checked for continuity and passed. Performed Dell Diagnostics Express test through Utility Partition on disc Drive and Passed. Tried Microsoft AutoFix. to repair autorun problem with no success. Only thing I haven't tried yet is to Repair OS (I suspect corrupted files following a ComboFix treatment) but, since the disc drive is not recognized I can't get sys to Boot from it to run the Reinstallation CD. I've tried reinstalling and updating CD-RW Drivers but sys still shows secondary drive 0 not found upon boot up.
