Speakers and mic input not working anymore


Have you done a windows update recently? It could have been caused by a updated driver that your computer doesn't really like.

Or is your output device set to digital instead to analog?

Disk (CD) will not eject automatically nor play a CD. It make noise, (a clicking),trying to eject. In my computer, it will not show that the CD is in the drive.


Turn the power off before you try this. There's a small hole in front of most CD drives. You can straighten out a paper clip and try pushing it into the hole. It should go in about 1/4 to 1/2 inch and then stop. Press just a little harder and it may push open the tray and eject the CD. If there's not a CD in it, it may move it enough that it will reset itself. Once the tray is open, and the CD removed, you can power on your system. It should pull the CD tray back in. Once your system boots, try the eject button to see if it works.

My computer does not show my D:/drive, so it does not work


I would assume that your D drive is your CD Rom Drive. If you go into My Computer and the drive isn't there, Lets assume first that there is a problem with the Drive. If you have power to it and the drive does open to let you insert a disk, then our next step is to see if your data cable running to the drive is connected. Make sure that all power cables are unplugged before you open up the computer. Once opened look at the back of the CD Rom drive to check that the power plug is connected. Its the first set of 4 wires closest to you. The next cable next to that is the CD Rom Data IDE Cable. This cable must be plugged in all the way. Most of the IDE Cables will have a red stripe on one side. Make sure this red stripe is closest to the power cable for the drive. This will insure that you have this plugged in correctly. If you follow the IDE cable from the CD Rom to the mainboard (Motherboard) , you can make sure that this end is also seated firmly to the board. If all this is as it should be, go ahead and plug all your cables back in and restart your computer.

If this still doesnt solve your problem you might want to check your bios and insure that the CD Rom is recognized. It will show up in there if it sees it. If any of these solutions dont solve your problem, I would be leaning toward a bad CD Rom Drive.
