Question about Dell OPTIPLEX GX150 HEAT SINK & COOLING FANP/N 50044D A02
The CD may be turned 'off' in the BIOS listing which you can view on boot-up by usually holding down the F2 key. Sometimes BIOS setting may change for no good reason, so lookout for this and make sure your motherboard battery is providing enough power. Install a new battery if not sure.

Firstly will the CD rom open when you press the button. Is the 4 pin power cable attached to the device inside the case. Old computers have a failing CD before any other part fails usually. If the power and the cables are securely connected then maybe it is just faulty and needs replacing.
