Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
I am having problems with my dvd/cd drive. each time i put in a dvd or cd it won;t work. i orginally was removing programs with control panel (in hopes of speeding up computer due to alot of internet programs freezing). since that time, i have done restoring to a restoration point as well as an entrie pc recovery. both have given me no success in fixing this issue. i then tried to go into safe mode and uninstall, then install this driver as well as returning to default bios. still no result.
as such i;m curious as to if there is something else that can be done, or if it would just make more sense to get a whole new cd drive at the store
If you put the dvd/cd in the drive and hear it spinning, it may not be the drive. Check your device manager to see if any drivers are missing. Right-Click on My Computer > Manage > Device Manager. If you see anything with a yellow ! or a red X than you may have a driver issue. If not, than it could possibly be the physical cables and/or connections. If you are comfortable enough to open up the case, try replugging in the drive at both ends to make sure you have a good connection.
If all else fails, it may have just been a coincidence that the drive failed when you did your cleanup. Disc drives are rather cheap these days too, so you don't have to worry about spending an arm and a leg on a new one. Let me know how you make out.
