Okay, I am having the strangest windows problem that I have ever suffered over my years of windows usage My dvd drive has stopped working, every time I try to load a dvd disc my computer freezes. I found that strange and I googled it to see if anyone else had had that problem. Somewhere along the way I found someone saying that it was maybe a master/slave problem thingy. So I decided to open my compy up and fiddle a little bit with the jumper on the drive. Well, that didn't work and now every time I start up my compy I can't boot it up with the hard drive, I have to have the Windows disk in the drive ( because it can read normal cds ) . can anyone tell me how to fix it so I don'T have to have the disk every time I start the windows, because I don't want to have to format yet again :S. Thanks in advance.
