Dvd/cd drive not working, Tags: Power Laptops Last response: July 28, 2010 3:22 AM in Laptops & Notebooks Share mmartin622 July 27, 2010 11:29:34 PM Hello, I put a brand new cd/dvd drive in my hp laptop running Vista. Nothing works. There is no power? I can't even open it. Same problem as the old drive. Not detected in Device manager, either. Is this a power problem?

If the old one was acting the same way as the new one, it seems like there may be a bad connection on the motherboard somewhere. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
