Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
Right Click "My Computer" and click properties.
from the properties menu on the Hardware tab click the device manager for windows XP else in Vista click you dont need to click the hardware tab just click the device manager on the top left
On the list of devices click the DVD/CD Rom Drives
on the open list you should see the name of your DVD ROM drive. If it has a caution sign on it then theres a problem with the driver. But if it does not have any sign on it then right click it and click uninstall.
Automatically your PC would scan fro hardware changes but if does not the click on Action and click scan for hardware changes. this would enable a fresh reinstallation of your DVD ROM.
If this does not solve the problem, turn off your computer and restart it and go to your bios using the F2 button or which ever button displayed at the bottom of the startup screen,
On the Bios, check your hardware devices to see if your DVD Drive is listed. if it is not listed then turn it off.
take out your DVD Drive from your computer by unscrewing the bolts holding it at the base close to the battery location. and slide it back in careful to make sure it sits perfectly in the connectors.
Turn it back on and try the Bios test again to see if its listed. if its not then probably your DVD drive is bad.
For further tests or repairs, see a technical repairer of your model of computer for a replacement or further physical tests

If you cannot eject the tray that means the power to your DVD ROM is not connected, You need to open the computer panel to the side and inspect the connections, make sure they are tightly connected. Be sure to power off your PC and unplug it from min power source before you do this.
