All other DVDs/CDs work fine in the laptop? to me it sounds like it might be failing. But maybe the W7 DVD is funny .. I'd try and copy it on y our desktop, and then see if the laptop can read it.

Ok I have located the driver and installed it now the coprocessor is fine again and i cannot find the right nvidia driver for the laptop, I put in the series of card and model and then it gave me a driver to download and install which i tried several times only for it to say not compatible. i have definatley put the right graphics card in and tried 4 times downloading a file 128mbs Windows has installed no problem from the external hard drive and programs download and install no worries even from Disk. I even tried my Pc's legal copy of windows 7 to see if the laptop would be able to read it and no joy with that either.

I am just worried now in case i need to do a repair from the disk which it will not read on the laptop.

Any suggestions?

all I feel is wrong now is the fact the dvd rom will not read either of the two copies of legal windows 7 home premium 64 bit. I just recently watched a movie from disk and no problem reading it i have also installed from disk photo shop elements 9 and no problems there either.

I am a little concerned to what i am about to write here now.

When I open computer management and it show the drives on the laptop it has on the c drive and 8gig block then another part which is the remainder of the C:\\ drive then it has disk 2 but i don't have a disk two we not yet anyway i have another hard drive for it but it's not installed. Then i have dvd rom which is the (D) drive if i right click it to populate it, it doesn't do anything. Pluse the drive letter changes to (F) sometimes and I have to go back and change the drive path from F back to D. Can anyone tell me why would this happen and could it be the reason why the windows disks are not able to be read by the dvd rom.

Regards

if you have a 4GB+ usb flash drive I'd make one of these .. then you don't need the DVD

Again .. to me sounds like the dvd drive is failing/faulty .. look into getting a replacement.

Try booting the DVD: How to Boot your Computer from a Bootable CD or DVD

If it will boot and load, you can choose to reinstall if you have performance issues. If not, you'll know you have an installer to use for Repairs or to reinstall from boot,.

In fact, test the Repair console by opening it on the second screen to see if it locates your intallation and finds anything to repair. If not, close out and reboot.
