I have a Hp Presario C700 Laptop. The Optiarc DVD RW AD-7561s stopped working properly after running Win Vista Basic Up-dates. Can any one please assist?

    You could try to go in and remove the installed recent updates....one-by-one until you find the offender

    And start the computer. If the Boot Disc doesn't run and start whatever that Boot Disc is the Optical Drive is fried. Just a note here if you can read Cd's but not DVDs or the other way around DVDs but not Cd's then someone has left a Disc in the Drive and the LED that generates the Laser for that Disc type has lost intensity and can no longer read that Disc type.

    You may have to enter the BIOS and set the Boot Order to Optical Drive before the HDD to do this and if you do remember to save the changes as you exit the BIOS.

    If you don't have a Boot Disc you can use the Ultimate Boot CD available free here

    But you will however most likely need a different computer to burn this Disc.
