Amilo li 1720 - no DVD device detection

Postby misjah » Sun Mar 14, 2010 5:55 pm

Hello. I`m having this minor problem with DVD device. When turning computer on, DVD and HDD are normally detected and I can boot to OS or from a CD. After a software reboot the second device (dvd) is not there and the IDE Led is ON all the time. Bios is stuck for a few seconds and then continues to boot from HDD and it`s not visible in OS. It ''returns'' after complete shut down. What could be the problem here? (it`s really annoying since I use several linux operating systems)
DVD device - LG GCA-4080N
HDD device - Fujitsu MHV2080
Bios - R01-A0M
CPU - Intel T1130 (T2130)

just a thought: try to disable "quick startup" in BIOS and see what happens.....
otherwise perhaps you have the possibility to choose from where to boot by pressing F12 or F10 (refer to your Bios documentation)

Tried that already, same thing. I can only see HDD by pressing F12. It`s really annoying and it`s not really safe for hardware to turn it off and on again after every reboot.
