I have purchased the LENOVO 3000 Y410 (Model = 7757 89Q) Laptop in Nov-2008.
From start I am facing problems with the DVD drive (Optiarch).
I have replaced the defected DVD drive with new one in Sept-2009 from the Lenovo service centre.
Still I am facing problems:
The drive is not able to write DVD
Sometimes the drive is not able to read DVD.
Please someone help me as what should I do.
Note: After the drive replacement, I have just able to write 2 CDs.
