  1. Try resetting the BIOS to factory default settings, optimal default settings, etc. If nothing changes, try the following options:
    1. Replace the CD/DVD Drive
    2. In another computer; copy the files from the recovery disk to a folder and make bootable USB recovery drive.
    A 3rd. option would be to check the CD/DVD Drive connections if you have the instructions to open the laptop shell.
