I am having some trouble with the DVD drive on my laptop. When playing, (any), DVD's my laptop freezes and then "blue-screens". The blue-screen states that it could be either a hardware fault or a driver error.
To remidy this I have been trying to find a driver update for the HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4240N supplied with my laptop. The Dell driver download section does not hold the correct driver, (GCC 4241 but no 4240), and I have been unable to find a driver update on the net, (found lots of firmware updates that don't do anything!).
Can anyone point me in the direction of the nearest driver update please?
I have tried loads of DVD's and they all fall over in the same spectacular manner. I am using WinDVD on XP, and have been for about a year without problems. This issue only started over the weekend.....
