Question about IBM 300PL (PC 300 PL 733) PC Desktop
Op sys can't find the CD rom anymore, A, C E and F drives are recognized but the D isn't even though the device manager shows it.
So does anyone have the Mother Board dip switch settings for the 300PL ?
Have any you added any drives to your computer recently? If so you'll have to check the jumper settings on your drives. If nothing has changed to your computer between the time it was working and when it stopped then you most likely have a dead drive.
But since you say the device manager sees your drive you'll need to go into your administrator tools in the control panel and select computer management. Under storage select drive management. If you see your drive listed but has no drive letter you can right-click the drive and assign a drive letter. The change should be immediate.
