Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T60 Notebook ?

Cannot open cd-rom drive!

\015 Sounds strange but i own an hp lenovo T60 laptop and suddenly my cd-rom drive has stopped opening when i press the eject button on the side of the laptop. ive tried restarting the laptop a few times. the cd-rom drive does not even show up under my computer! i recently tried to free up a lot of space on the hard drive and now im worried i have deleted an essential cd-rom driver. if so, is there a place i can download another one? could this be a hardware problem, ie. the cd rom drive has died itself? i just assumed that cd-rom drives last for the life of the laptop...\015\012the cd rom drive was working a week or two ago.\015\012\015\012any help would be really appreciated :)\015

Answers :

The thing about cd/dvd drives in general is that they die and thats the case here even if you deleted anything of the operating system its self would notice that the cd drive was missing the driver and ask you about it since you havent stated that its safe to say that the drive is dead
