Question about Compaq S510 15" Color Monitor
i have a second hand computer which is windows 95, very old school.
im having trouble with the d drive...it wont work.
when ever i access it, a message pops up saying "device is not ready",
it doesnt play cd-roms or anything!
it ejects and closes but nothing more.
we have not bothered asking on any other professional help so anything you could help me with would be great!
This age of computer will most likely be an IDE CD rom drive
You may have a break in the IDE cable it has 40 wires in it if it is
IDE and may be connected to its own IDE controller or may be set up as a slave to the hard drive on the same cable.
if it is i slave it will have jumpers on it that tell if the drive is slave or master . Check these are set up to hard drive master and then cd rom as slave if on same cable
if it is faulty you may need a new ide cd rom
not sure how hard it is to get ide but with onew of these you could convert to sata type drive http://www.umart.com.au/umart1/pro/Products-details.phtml?id=10&id2=25&bid=2&sid=71095
