Sony Vaio VGN-FS215S CDDVD RW fault

By 4chihuahuas ·
Hi wonder if anyone can help.
Have a Sony Laptop as above with a internal Sony DW-D56A CDDVDRW - The laptop recognises it and device manager says its working but it is not at all - the only thing it does is spins(when a cd is in) and ejects(when prompted)
Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling without success and actually taking it out and putting back in.
Have also tried to replace with an identical drive and also the updated DW-Q58A - whenever i put in a new drive and try to boot up the laptop i get a black screen and the message - operating system not found.
The laptop will then not work at all - it will only work without the drive or with the supposed faulty drive installed or disabled - it will not work at all with a new drive and i've tried 3!! - the new drives do work as have passed them on to other people but am not sure if the original will work in another laptop.
Think there must be something wrong with the laptop - has anyone got any ideas?
thanks in advance
