Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
My hard drive was installed into my computer and it runs but I can't figure out how to run it to the computer itself. Its not reading any of my cds or dvds. I forgot that i need to register it into the computer but I can't remember how to do that? I have an emachine w3609. I think its regedit or something like that...i was wondering if you could help? thanks
You shouldn't have to run regedit for this.
I think you're saying it doesn't recognize the DVD player.
I assume you're running XP
First, go to Control Panel/Add New hardware to see if it's recognized. Let it discover new hardware and see if the drive gets recognized.
If not, go to Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager and find the DVD player. Try to Update the drivers. If that doesn't help, select Uninstall, then reboot. Windows should then install the standard drivers, and you're good to go.
