Having problems with your Compaq PC Laptops ?

I am not able to use my DVD drive because the driver is corrupt. It is the Slimtype DVD DS8A2S-A ATA. It came with my Compaq HP. So, far I can't repair it or find a replacement for it.

If that doesn't help try reinstalling windows to the computer or use the recovery cd's to restore the computer to the factory settings.

do read the instructions on the recovery cd's they are not used in windows.
