Re: Compaq Presario 5360 Cd rom is Full

Replace your drive with a known working drive and see if this clears up your problem. If it does not then windows has been sabtosed by virus spyware or adware and you will probably have to reload windows again after a good reformat of your disk. If you have a restore disk it would be better. You will lose all your info so save it using either the internet or a drive like USB of some type.

Re: Compaq Presario 5360 Cd rom is Full

Well as my collegue has suggested a CD Rom is only a read only memory, it doesnt has any storage space unless it is a Write, and if there is no cd in the rom than it will not be accesible.but if you insert a cd and it gives the same error than try cleaning the drive with a cd-cleaner or if persist than try lodging ur problem again and we will try to help you

Re: Compaq Presario 5360 Cd rom is Full

A CD-ROM drive is a read-only drive. It will always says there is 0 usable space, since you cannot write to it. You need to have a CD-Writer in order to add content to either a CD-R or CD-RW disc. You would get the "not accessible" error message if there is no media in the drive. If you place a disc in the drive, that message should go away.

SOURCE: Replace CD-Rom Drive

solution: open front blue magnetic case door, look on either side of the power button, there are finger holes in the other blue cover.
lift out from bottom to top. this cover comes off, not the whole
case. inside find tabs next to cd drive, squeeze and pull out. note: the side sliders were they come out, they will come off the
cd drive when removed. it is easier to replace the top drive by removing the bottom drive, put in the top half way, then put bottom back in half way and slide them in together.

voice of experience. hope this helps

Did a system restore of compaq presario 5000 computer. cd/dvd player will not play gaming cds

See if it would play regular cd, then see if it would play dvd's. The reason is because most gaming cd now and days are dvd's and maybe your dvd-rom has a driver issue or the laser head isn't reading it. So try that first, then see if the drivers for the cd/dvd rom is working properly in the device manager. It may need a dvd coded software, try installing like powerdvd or something. If it still ain't working, and it can't play dvd's then your cd-drive could be history

My cd rom in my computer hasnt worked for a while...recently my computer crashed so i thought it corrupted the cd rom but i swithched it with another cd rom from an old computer and it still doesnt work...

I just fixed a problem I had with my cd-rom where it wasn't burning my cd's. I downloaded the ASPI Driver for Windows from here and it fixed my problem. Without that driver, your cd-rom doesn't get fully reconized by the system basically. Let me know if this helps.

CD Rom - not working

It is possible for optical drives to fail. The easiest solution would be to try and reseat all the cables and attempt to read a known good CD-ROM with data on it. It it still fails, replace it. Most likely, due to the age of the computer, it has an IDE connection, not SATA.

If you replace it don't forget to place the master/slave jumper pin in the correct position.

Cd rom door

Somewher on the front of the CD drive there is a VERY small hole. Take a paper clip and insert it into this hole and gently push on the paper clip until you find that it depresses a bit. At the same time gently try closing the drawer.

Used Compaq Presario 5240

Yo will probably need to download and install the drivers.

Check that cable for floppy and CD rom are not connected in upside down.

You find some documentation and all the downloads on compaq support page for this desktop:

you may need to replace your cd-rom drive, you can try buying a new cd-rom drive for around 30-40$ which also will mean you'll have a DVD-rom instead of cd-rom.
