IDE #1 error

Hi experts,

I have a Toshiba 1800 laptop that came for repair and it gives IDE #1 error on boot. It boots to windows normally though, but it does not boot from CD ROM. What could be the cause and what is the solution?

Thanks,
Priya.

Flash the BIOS, ensure it's up-to-date.  Then reset it to the defaults.

Hi Rindi,
I replaced the CD drive and now it works fine. No error message. It was Cd drive incompatibility, I guess.

Thanks for all your help.
Priya.
