Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook
I just installed a known good DVD-ROM into my Armada m700. It would not read CDs in the old one. It read CDs fine in the replacement. I then installed Windows XP on the laptop. Everything seemed to work fine until I started trying to install software after the OS install was completed. It will now not read the replacement drive. It recognized the drive and automatically installes the driver but will not read CDs in the drive. The drive does not spin up and I hear clicking noises when it attempts to read the CD. I find it very odd that the drive might have gone bad right after installed the OS, but I can't find any information regarding XP and issues with the driver. Thanks for any ideas.
