Compaq Presario C300 DVD Driver Problem

I have a Compaq Presario C300, approximately 2 years old. For about a month and a half now, the damn DVD drive has ceased to function. It sounds like it's trying to read the disc inside but just an't manage it. Any suggestions? I rally would appreciate any kind of help.

    every time i try to put a cd in, it seems like it is reading it but i just revs up and down and makes awlful noises. I have had this computer for 2 years... and my power adapter just went. my sister has the same computer and 2 weeks before mine went hers did as well.
    anyway sometimes even if i do get a cd to work in my player it will seem as though it is skipping even though the same cd works on pretty much every other computer. what is wrong with my disk drive.. is there a way to fix it?

Compaq Presario C300 Recoivery Disc 2 corrupt


Hi John.

F11 process is not working and you get a NTLDR missing when you turnon the notebook.

Steps to be performed:
1. Perform hard drive self test from BIOS.
2. If it is passed then use retail version of operating system disk to install XP or try using new recovery disks which nay cost you $15.00.

In your notebook model this issue appears if there is any issue with the hard drive.
