Having problems with your Compaq PC Laptops ?

Thank you leecom72. Here's the info.

\015 Thank you leecom72. I'm okay with my desktop. I located the correct firmware update for my LiteOn drive, although it does also pull up the blank page. I found that one on the LiteOn site.The one I can't find anywhere is for the Philips DVD Rom in my laptop - SDVD8821H. It is in my Compac Presario C306US. Even the online tech at HP couldn't help me. They gave me the wrong update!!! Thanks again!!\015

and there is absolutely no warranty that this update will fix your drive reading problems...\015\012

Good luck :)
