completely stopped working, the prescese of a CDROM in the drive is not
I also have Linux (PCLOS) installed. When I boot into Linux the drive
is not even shown.
To make sure this is not a software corruption issue, I made a Linux
Live CD (using another machine of course) and tried to boot from the
CDROM. This also failed and the system booted into the default Windows
Are there ways I can make sure that this is a hardware problem with the
drive ? if this is confirmed then what is the best approach then ?
Another problem with the laptop is that i'm unable to boot the machine
using a linux USB key (made bootable using syslinux) even though i
correctly select USB devices to boot before the drive.
Could this problem be related to the cd drive problem as well ? I did
do a bios upgrade a week or two ago.
Any help would be appreciated.

try swapping it into their system. You could try the diagnostic software
that should be installed on the Windows partition; on my T40 it's PC
Doctor. If your system was purchased new, it should be under warranty. A
call to EZ-Serv may result in them sending a replacement.
