How long have you used this drive? was it originally working or has it been this way since you bought it? Try getting a compatible DVD writer. What O.S version are you using? you should also check on that.

OK I MEANT THE MACHINE IS NOT BOOTING BUT INSTEAD ITS SHOWING AN ACTIVE HYPHEN ON THE SCREEN. IT CANT EVEN BOOT OR READ OS FROM A CD.


Go into your bios settings and apply "Bios defaults",
Be sure the boot order is set to
1. CD/DVD
2. Hard Disk Drive
then save and reboot.
If the system boot, scan your drive with a good anti-virus.
If not, insert your Windows installation disk and reboot, press space if prompt to do so to boot on the CD. Reinstall Windows.
If it does not work, boot with a dos diskette, with fdisk.exe, delete all your partitions. Reinstall Windows.

If not , there might be some other physical problems, like you DVD drive or floppy. Remove any cds or floppy in drive and reboot. If not, you have to reinstall the OS.
