Can you see the drives in BIOS? If they are not avaliable in Windows but in BÌOS, try this.

its dont show any kind of optical or hard drive in the bios specs there just not listed only cpu specs only says anything about optical drive is the boot order and i made cd-rom/dvd-rw the first to boot but nothing its not like i paid alot for it lmao i bought the laptop for 50 bucks lol


but like i said when i use a usb optical drive it shows at the post when u hit tab for hardware info on boot up but doesnt boot in to it i press f9 to select which device to boot up from its not there lol i tried 3 diffirent usb optical drives and nothing and there all good drives and but get i can still boot form usb flash drive lol
