Hi
so yea recently my power supply was giving me problems and since i still had warranty i took it to the store for a replacement. After they replaced the power supply my Dvd writer drive was showing up as floppy drive on My Computer. and i don't even have a floppy drive installed in computer. So i went to the device manager and disabled the floppy drive and updated my dvd driver. But now it doesnt show any dvd/floppy drive on my computer.

Does it still show a DVD drive in Device Manager?

When it was in the shop the DVD may have come unplugged. And the floppy drive could have accidentally been enabled in the BIOS. Check the BIOS setup and disable the floppy drive there not in Device Manager. Also check that the DVD drive shows in the BIOS.

If you can't figure it out I'd take it back again, if they made changes, forgot to plug something in, or broke something else they should fix it for you.

Hi thanks for your answer, i fixed the problem.
It was a sata dvd drive and the sata cable was loose. So I just reconnected it and the dvd drive is detected.
