Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
If it used to work but now doesn't and you have changed nothing then the following will help.
You can try a CD Laser cleaning kit, you put a liquid on a disc and put it in the dvd drive.
It will clean the laser, hopefully this will work.
If it still doesnt work its most likely at the end of its life.
Try a Music CD, a DVD, and any other discs, make sure the discs aren't scratched.
DVD drives are extremly cheap these days,
I got a Sony DVD Writers for £18 delivered from Play.com
Its very simple to fit,
Switch off PC
Just take of side of the PC Case
Unscrew the 2 screws on each side of the dvd player, disconnect the wires .
Then fit the new one
The PC will pick it up after a restart and it wont need drivers
