Question about Computers & Internet
The absence of the cd rom drive in my computer ..and automatically the malfunction is caused by a virus that attack the drivers of these kinda devices..
You have to reinstall it in order to work ..but as long as the virus will be present in the system it will get back to not functioning after a few hours or days ..
the quick fix is to go to the device manager by right clciking on the my computer icon ..than choose properties/hardware /and device manager ..
In there look in the list and find the cd -rom drive ..just unde computer ..on disk drives..
it will be in yellow with a ask sign on it ..signaling the lack of the driver or the wrong driver being installed..
right click on it ..and choose update driver ..than choose not to install it auto ..but to pick from a list ..and from the list of drivers that windows will expose..choose the one that it is corespondent with the device in use..and next until finish ..
restart and this will get it back temporarily ..
The real fix..will be to reinstall; the operation system completely ..and format the C partition during the operation ..This will be the only way to get rid of the virus for good..
You will need a boot-able CD with the operation system ...and the drivers for the devices..(at least the LAN card to be able to connect it and download the rest of the drivers after) ..
or....use the recovery disk or the recovery partition if there is any available ...this will be easier to do ..but not that efficient without formatting the C partition ..
