A new CD drive is 200??? Blasphemy!

About 40 for a really good DVD burner...

And a little over 20 for a combo drive.

They should as long as it's a standard size laptop optical drive...why not take the current one out to see if it's the same?

instead of waiting for a delivery, try taking a working cd drive from another laptop and plugging it into the laptop that won't boot up, use the recovery disk and then switch them back, at least the laptop will work until the drive gets delivered...

That's a good idea. Then if that works, you know the problem is the CD drive and you can order a new one.
