Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
My dvd rom won't work like the computer doesnt read that there is a dvd in the drive it says there isn't,here are the steps the troubleshoot told me to take
You forgot to check the jumper settings of the Hard Disk and the DVD Drive found at the back near the IDE and power cables. If you are using one IDE cable, then one jumper should be a Master, that's the Harddisk, and the DVD drive a Slave. If you are using two IDE cable then both must be Master.
You should check also the Harddisk jumper help settings printed on them, some harddisk needs the jumper settings for Slave presence on the same IDE cable.
If it doesn't work then It's either the cable or the DVD drive has a problem.
