Did you install/update the CD/DVD drive drivers?
Many people rely on Windows to find and install drivers, but Windows is not good at that. Best to use the devices own drivers.
I installed a Light Scribe CD/DVD RW Optical Drive on my Alienware computer. When I booted it up, it took about 7 minutes to complete. Normally it takes about one minute.
Does anyone know why it now takes so long for my computer to boot up?
My computer has a 3GHz Dual Core Pentium 4 Processor
4GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM
