Open Device Manager

  1. Click on the Start button and then choose Control Panel.

  2. Click on the System and Security link.

    Note: If you're viewing the Large icons or Small icons view of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Simply click on Device Manager and then proceed to Step 4.

  3. In the System and Security window, click on the Device Manager link located under the System heading.        

Look for your dvd drive...it may have a yellow exclamation point against it or a red cross......

Right click and delete it

Reboot your laptop.


working now ?
