Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

Dell Dimension 2400

My CD-ROM/DVD is not showing up in my computer and it is not reading the DVDs. I went it to delete some applications because the computer was real slow and I think I may have deleted something that had to do with the drivers because it was working before that. So how do I get the drivers back so that it will work. I also want to take everything off the computer and reload all the applications and software that came with the computer how to I do this. I did order more memory 1G and the computer came with 512 but I think I have a virus so I want to just start from scratch.

Get your hands on an external hard drive (USB), back up all the data your want to keep including email (May need to export), then go through the set up disks that came with the PC, once you've done that, copy all your data from the external hard drive back to you PC.

Cd- rom is not reading DVD movies


It may be that you don't have a DVD Decoder program installed. Look at the disks that came with the computer and see if one of them needs to be installed. The disk should be printed with information as to what is on the disk.

Try going to add hardware in your control panel and have the dvd-drives' driver disk on hand.

What are your computers specs?
