  • DVD drive overheating?


    I just purchased a Sager 5760. So far it's been great. But I've been running into an annoying problem with the DVD drive when trying to install programs.

    What I've noticed so far is that when the laptop is running for a little while, long enough for the laptop to feel warm, the dvd drive gets flaky and doesn't read some install disks.

    I powered it down and let it cool down, turned the machine back on, and magically it reads the same install disks.

    When it can't read the disks, it throws an error "not a win32 application".

    I'm running 64 bit Vista.

    Anyone else run into this problem?
