You may also try removing the DVD drive from the laptop and put it back in.

That would be the obvious place to find it, but after searching for the options I found this forum.

 

Let me just say, it doesn't work!

 

I have a T510i.

 

 

The option is not there! I linked to an image, that shows the above screendump but only with to Beep and USB options available.  I'm logged in as admin, runs win7prof, danish version.

Hi all! I'm having a similar problem.

 

The thing is, when i hit enter the dvd driver starts reading or power on to read something, and then off.

 

It's very strange.

 

You know something about this?

 

Thanks!
