Question about Computers & Internet
Sounds like the drivers were removed at some point. Ok,
Follow that link, Match it to what you have for a CD Rom drive. They have everything, even the old stuff i still use on my other computers. *If this does not work. Then check the cables of the cd rom drive and make sure the serial cable is in. this is a thin long strip cable that goes from your motherboard to your cd rom. BUT before you even touch anything, make sure to touch something made of real metal to remove all static electricity that is on your body, ive goofed plenty of times working on a system by not doing that and toasted a few drives that way.
Now if all else fails, and i am saying it would have to mean that the drive is dead. You will need to buy a new drive. But ITS Very hard to remove the drivers for a CD Rom drive because of the fact that they are in BIOS of the CPU. So unless you were in there doing something, the cd rom drive should work. But CD Rom drives have a work like of 2 years at max usually, its rare to find drives that last longer than that unless they were barely used. Hence why i still have some really old drives for my server system.
