Asus PRO31S cd/DVD divice missing
I have been given this Particular laptop to fix. It currently has no OS installed and as such am in the process of trying to install Windows 7 Home premium I have tried Both 64 bit (as it has a 64 bit processor) and 32 bit each time I get past the first setup screen it says " Setup will begin shortly" or something like that. then comes up with a message saying that a CD/DVD device driver is missing and to load the driver before continuing.
Now of course this laptop did not come with a driver CD so I looked on the internet using different search terms the Asus website, the Intel website all to no avail. I have also come across Driver download software, this is of no use as they are .EXE files and can only be run under a pre-installed OS. I am completely out of ideas, can anyone else think of something I may have missed?
NB: this model has an T7300 Duo CPU
