Question about Computers & Internet
Try taking out the cd-rom out of the system and then hook it back up. Go into your BIOS and see if its being recognized in there, if it is then let it boot back up into windows and see if the device is okay. If its sitll not then try another known working device in there and see if the cd-rom works now. If it does then you know the original cd-rom was bad. If it still doesn't then it could be the motherboard controller that the cd-rom hooks up to is bad.
in the BIOS, If the cd-rom doesn't show up or if it shows weird symbols then try another cd-rom and if you get the same symptoms then the motherbard is bad.
