Sadly I'd have to buy one, also the drive is not dead because the electronic drive still opens when the electronic button is pressed and also if you put a disc in it actually loads or tries to even though the PC doesn't recognise it. The drive actually spins!

That means nothing, if you attach only a power cable it would open and spin the drive/disk up. Try a different data cable and on a different port. That may be repetitious.

i tried unplugging and replugging everything in again once more and as if by magic the blu ray drive works again, can't believe i didnt plug it in fully twice in a row! shame on me! anyway, thanks for everyone's help testing all my components for damage, i think the blue screens may have come from damaged RAM slots, as after transferring them to the other available slots i have had no problems.

MemTest86+ is the only way to thoroughly check - you MUST run a minimum of 8 passes to get a reliable result.

+1 to this. Start memtest before you go to work or too bed and let it run. If there are errors follow the procedure for testing slots and RAM modules.
