    Default System not Boot without CD Driver in Windows 8

    Hi guys,

    My laptop is running with windows 8 now. The CD driver and the hard disk coexisted. Now because the Cd driver is of no use for me, so I want to remove it. As a result, the system can not be booted after I pull up the power of the driver. Only the motherboard LOGO is in displaying, the light of the mouse is on while there is no response when I press the keyboard. And the first startup disk in the setting of BIOS is set as the hard disk. After I plug in the the power supply, the system can be booted now.

    Do you know what's the matter? Are there solutions?

    Thanks a lot~

    Default Re: System not Boot without CD Driver in Windows 8

    I only came across the problem of system bot boot without the CD in they tray.

    If the computer does boot without the drive attached there are at least 3 possibilities.

    1. The drivers in Windows are messed up. In which case you might try booting it up with a cd in it to get it to boot, then deleting it from the device manager, take the cd out and restart. or

    2. The firmware in the drive is messed up in which case you could go to the manufacturer's website and get instructions and file to flash the drive. or

    3.The drives hardware is faulty in which you would contact the manufacturer about the warranty if there is one.
