If it is making a whizzing sound it is getting power so check to see if the cd drive is detected in the bios and if it shows up in there make sure it has a Tick next to it . I'll check back tomorrow

hi. it doesn't show up.
i have found the discs that came with the computer, that have the drivers on them. however, i obviously can't use these as the cd drive is not working! would it be possible to insert this disc into another computer, and save the driver onto a usb stick, and transfer it that way? alternatively, is there anywhere online where i could download the driver ? (i have googled but with little success.) it is a toshiba MK4025GAS. could this work, or have i got the completely wrong idea.
thank you for all your help and patience so far.
To check the plugs are pushed into motherboard and the back of your CD-ROM you have open your computer case up either by unscrewing it and lift the case off or pushing buttons at the top and bottom of your case. once inside be very careful not to touch anything else your looking for the plugs that goes into the back of your drive, and you want to push it in but be careful and then do the same with the motherboard plug but don't touch motherboard surface or it's chips. after doing this put your case back on and see if that helps. I hope this helps to explain things for you. good luck

HI, i have the same problem, and it does have a a yellow ! next ti, what should i do?
Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. Does the cd drive show up in "my computer"? If it does, you probably don't need to run the cd gone patch. Go to start, my computer, right click properties, hardware tab, device manager. Does the drive show up there and is there a yellow ! next to it? Have you tried cleaning the optical lens?
