The solution it offers? Yup, I’ve been all over the website trying to find the drivers for the DVD drive.

It fails to POST. However, to whom I give my hard-earned money will be determined in large part by the response I get to this post. Not even so much as a beep. How you even got here is a complete mystery to me, but to mistake us for HP support is totally baffling.
