Question about HP Compaq Presario 6430NX (DA237A#ABA) PC Desktop
Ok so this is the deal. First of all i have a Comp Persario da237a-aba. Not sure if that will matter in this situation. Sooo... The issue is that i installed new ram and a video card to my computer.. After that my drive dont work. Like cd-rom. I go to my computer and it knownledges them but thats it. What should i do?
Hi, by drives are you referring to your floppy, harddisk and CD ROM or just the CD ROM? Since you indicated that you can go to My Computer, I am assuming your HD is working and booting to Windows but your CD won't read inserted discs. You may want to try and uninstall the CD, (Right click My Computer, Properties, Hardware, Device Managemr, expand DVD/CD-ROM drives, right click on your CDROM, uninstall). Reboot the machine and see if XP auto detects and re-install. Assuming that the CD ROM has no hardware problem, then it should work. Should this fail, you may want to try to force your registry to restore your CD (Be careful, there are risks involved). This requires that you edit your Registry after of course backing it up. Should you feel comfortable doing this, the procedure and registry entry can be found at http://www.theeldergeek.com/restore_missing_cd_or_dvd_drive.htm. Hope this work out for. Kind regards.
