Re: compaq 7600 will not play, burn, cds or dvds
It seems more problem of dvd rom than a update. try to clean the lense with wet tissue. first try to boot your system with bootable cd/dvd. if it booted it means the software gone corrupt otherwise cd gone bad.

if you burn this dvd by yourself then there must be problem with the X speed of your DVD ROM drive.Most of DVD rom drives does not play dvds scratched and old dvds.Lens of your dvd rom may be faulty.If DVD is new and its condition is better then there must be problem in your PC.Proper dvd player is not installed in your pc.I would recommend KM player or K-lite media codec pack.You can easily get them on google or at www.download.cnet.com/
click start control panel you will see thre options change theme change desktop background and adjust screen resolution then select resolution from the drop down list you can adjust to your preffered settings 1024x 768 is usually recomended (you have not stated your problem)
hope this helps
It sounds like the drive is ready for replacement. It may be that the laser lens is dirty so the drive never detects a disc, or it's gotten too weak from age and use. Replacement drives are very cheap, so the best thing to do is replace the drive. You can get a DVD burner now at Newegg (www.newegg.com) for $25.99.
Take the drive out and carefully take off the top. The lase shines through a very small glass cover that looks like a small light bulb. Clean the very fine layer of dust off of this glass "eye" and this MIGHT fix your problem. I have seen this happen dozens, if not hundreds of times. Keever
