  1. Unable to find the DVD drive on PC after Windows updates


    I've been losing my Slimline DVD drive after Windows update

    previously I went back to my last good restore point and it works until Windows updates again

    Looks like I have version 1803 now and it says I'm nearing the date where my version won't be supported any longer

    Well again I tried to go back to the old restore point but now I can't go back to my restore point because it just shows the last update for a restore point

    I've tried deleting my DVD drive but when it reboots I get the Dreaded somethings wrong with your drive Yellow Icon

    Windows found the problem, said it repaired it, then told me to reboot my PC, but after I did I still didn't have the DVD drive

    I really don't want to wipe the computer and start all over when it appears something is conflicting with my DVD driver

    Help please?


    Ron

    DVD Drive issues.

    The games used to run, now apparently the disks don't even read.

    Go to Device Manager and remove the DVD
    Scan for hardware changes and update driver as OS suggests

    Still not working?

    1) Clean the heads.
    2) Run a diagnostic program on the drive.

    Nothing else has changed about your system aside from the OS?

    Revert to XP Home, assuming you don't find the source of the problem in steps above.
