I have installed a used cd-rw drive on my compaq presario 5360 desktop do I need software for it also.I wanted to upgrade it to a cd-rw drive but I have windows 98 I don't use this computer for the...

OLD IRON DAY; (ouch)
5360 ? or CQ5360SC) the full model number of PC matters, !
why in the world run win 98,, ? on a newer Compaq?
yes you need DRIVER (software base) to run any CD drive
and it must match, the drive, and OS. run
there is no win98 drivers, for newer drives. or PCs.
no CD driver makers NAME OR MODEL STATED by you...

so no answer possible (accurate)
but. .can say this,,, as most tech would say btw...

when using relic, 98, go to the drive makers web site
read the support page there, read if it supports win 98
if not, it will never run.on 98

The 5360 WAS MADE IN 1999, IT IS 18 YEARS OLD.
A relic of the past century. and not supported by anyone.
not the PC nor HP or MS are supported.
The makers of CD-RW drives, do not support 98 today
so that leaves you trying to find a CD-RW drive
that has, w98 drivers matching, it from 18 years ago.
wow, what hard thing to do or try.

Try to run w7 on it ). sure would but in fact id send it to the trash.
buy 2007 or newer PC. with SATA PORTS.
PATA (aka, IDE old) ports PC are DEAD technology.

  1. find a CD-rw drive PATA not already dead and w98 drivers for it, be like near imposslible task, endless,
  2. buy a newer PC, YAH , that the rigth choice
  3. with Windows 7 on it. be super wise. or newer.

Windows 98
it's dead, MS does not support it.
Nor does HP (it's double dead)
nor do any modern DVD or CD drive makers, now.(we run SATA now)
only OLD PATA drives were made for 98 and most are dead now.
some NOS parts exist, but finding the drivers for it and not getting a virus infection (malware) is near imposslble.
most makers of old CD drives, PATA there support pages
are LONG GONE. ;long ago.

why not find a 2007 and newer PC> for dirt cheap and end the pain. of windows 98 and PATA and no USB ports and yeah more pain.
all OS VISTA and older are DEAD, zero support.

if H3LL bent on 98, find a seller of a CD-RW drive
that promises comes with W98 drivers
I see none..

not having the driver software
is like car with no TIRES.

find a PC like this. 2007 or newer is best (for a FUTURE)

Cannot Copy the File P3.sys


Try to check your hard drive. Use a utility tool specially made for the manufacturer of your hard drive. Ex. Seagate Hard Drive = Seatools
Western Digital = Data Lifeguard.

Check for any errors or bad sectors on the hard drive

Beeping PowerEdge 1300

When a Dell server beeps in every 3-5 second that mean it comes from Raid controller.
Dell calls PERC Controller.
It usually reason of a disk failure.

Install open manage server administrator on your server.
See which disks are failed ?

Try to run Power edge diagnostics on the failed disk.
If it passes the test reseat the disk.
if it fails disk has to be replaced with a new one.
If passes the quick test, reseat the disk and update disk + perc firmware and driver to the latest level. that will solve the problem!!

99% beeping comes from perc controller because of a failed HDD
