    Thanks for helping. Compaq presario pc and cd/dvd player has gone very badly wrong. Think it needs replacing

    To know what you need to replace and what its difficulty level would be, it would be helpful to know what the make and model of your system is and verify that you want to replace the cd/dvd drive?

    Thanks and looking forward to your response

What is a PC player ???

Do you mean the CD or DVD rom, if this is what you are talking about,
yes its very simple,

There are two plugs, the power plug and data plug, remove old one put in new one and plug in both connectors, they can only go in one way
so just look and both ends and see how they go in.

Anymore questions just post back,

    Sure, anytime. They are easy to replace as I said.

    Are you sure it the player and not windows, if your not sure, just post back what the exact problem is, so I can tell what your system is doing and we can see if it is the rom or windows.

What signal is sent over the center pin of the power adapter?

the problem isn't in the psu - it's in the laptop. The centre pin supplies a trigger voltage with a simple carrier which tell s the BIOS about the power characteristics of the unit. Missing that signal, the BIOS assumes that even though there may be enough power to run the laptop, there may not be enough to charge the battery - a situation that, on lower power PSUs, can lead to damage to PSU and/or laptop. That's a safety feature that it doesn't attempt to trigger the charging circuit. The most likely reason for that trigger being missing is the (very poorly-designed) PSU interface having become disconnected from the rail. The socket needs replacing.
