I have installed ubuntu onto my Compaq C700 notebook as the main OS after using windows 7, now the dvd-rw drive is not working at all. There seems to be no power going to it and if it is connected to the mainboard then the laptop takes about 10 minutes to boot.

There is no led activity either it's like its completely dead, anyone have any ideas?

Test the drive with another laptop and/or test the laptop with another drive?
