  1. Blue question mark on drive icon?


    I have three different USB portable drives and when I plug one of them into my laptop, I get a blue question mark on the drive icon. I went to device manager and saw it there and the device manager re-assured me that the USB drive was being recognized. I cannot write or read anything from usb portable drive. I checked my BIOS only to find it in there. I try all three of my USB portable drives and I get the same blue question mark and cannot read or write to the drives. Also, all 3 USB portable drives work with my other computer. all help is much appreciated!-- Thanks,Darwin

    :)

  3. Optical drive shows blue question mark and become non responsive

    Hello,

    thank you for your reply

    • Windows 10 has the latest updates
    • The DVD/CD-ROM is not visible anymore in control panel / device manager as soon as the blue question mark appears over the drive letter for the drive (in explorer) Hence a bit difficult to check the driver and to try to update it
