I just installed Windows 7 from the Microsoft website on my new ASUS X83Vb Laptop. So far I installed the chipset drivers from the ASUS website and thats it so far other than nvidia drivers from NVIDIA. At this point everything is working well except I can not see my DVD Rom. My C and D drive are showing up in My Computer but I can not get my DVD Rom to show up or even open when I hit the external button. Does anyone have any advise on what I can do to fix this???
Also my hot keys at the top of the keyboard no longer work and they dont control the performance settings now. Anyway to get that to work.
Basically they had registry issues after certain updates that made the device manager say "sure your dvd drive is here but im not gonna give you access or an icon"
Not sure about windows 7 but sounds like a similar fault. Since it's rather new you might be out of luck for the moment but you could try to google a registry fix for it.
Solved xp/vista many times with that.
