Just grab the laser from the benq and put it in the lite-on . Their lasers between lite-on and benq are interchangeable. As xbox360 hacker says, you could be flagged when using a spoofed drive.Sorry to double post again.
Well, I got tired of trying to sort out my Liteon and spending more money, so I decided to spoof my BenQ to Liteon. Worked first time and I am back in the game. Boy am I glad I had that lying around.
Thanks to everyone for their help and the easy to follow JF tutorials. I just wish it had told me to take out that ribbon though, would have saved a ton of hassle. Will keep the dead drive if the need ever arises and I have to fix it.
