    You might try to use a cd lens cleaner. I believe the drive is having a hard time reading any disc that's why it keeps on blinking.


    It all leads to hardware failure unfortunately, If you're in warranty, contact Compaq to have the drive replaced.


    Hope this helps.

PCMCIA slot and DVD/CD


This is kind of a multi tier question answer that requires you do some diagnostic. First, is the PCMCIA slot and DVDrom on the same side of the computer? Also, do you always use the PCMCIA slot? First diagnostic is to try and boot off a XP cd or recovery cd you should have got w/ the computer to see if the DVDrom is in fact not functioning. Next, if you have the ability to try a different PCMCIA card in the slot that would be helpful.

There is a very good chance the PCMCIA slot damaged your board if you use a card all the time as some devices out there can get REALLY hot and do some internal damage.
