No, and if the embedded optical drive driver is causing blue screen errors, there's a better than 50% chance that it's because the drive has either started failing or has failed. If you have an Optiplex 280, which is probably around the ten years old mark, it's entirely possible. It's also entirely possible you have a bad cap or two, which was a known issue with the 260, 270, and 280 line of Optiplexes.
Is there any way I can download the imbedded driver for optical drives? I am using Win XP pro SP3, on a Dell Optimax 280. For some time I have been getting blue screen stops occasionally that indicate a driver caused the problem, a few weeks ago the CD and DVD drive (IDE)quit working, Ive tried disable and enable, remove and install, downloaded updated driver from dell, installed an SATA optical drive with same results.Thanks for any help/ideas.
