This laptop was having issues booting up and freezing. I just got it back from shipping it off for repair and I now want to install windows 7 on an SSD drive. The issue is the dvd drive is readable in the BIOS but doesnt seem to spin up or read any type of disk I put in it.

I'm wondering if the repair shop didnt properly seat the dvd drive when they reinstalled it or if its just coincidentally dead. That theory seems to be debunked based on it showing up in the BIOS.

I can pick up a used one on ebay for 15.00 bucks but I'm wondering if it could be something done during the repair. I guess I will email them to get their input.

Anyone had this issue before or have any ideas on how to fix?
