Question about Computers & Internet
I was listening to a data cd & then I changed cd's and NOTHING The thing just stopped working. I blew some air in a can in there to see if it was dirty, didnt help. The lights will blink, I do not actually hear the cd spinning though. When you look in my computer you can see the cd icon there but it says no disk. I have deleted the d drive & then let it install new drivers, have tried roll back, & also looked for a newer driver but it seems that there is not a new one. I am not sure if this has anything to do with it or not but before windows starts up I get a black screen with a underscore that blinks _ for a few seconds then windows will load. In device manager it show nothing is wrong with the drive it says the device is working fine lol. I guess I am trying to figure out if its broke or not. I would assume it would not work period if it was broke. But it seems to only work half ass right now. Someone at best buy swore up & down it had to be a virus. I have done a scan on trend micro & nothing comes up. I also have a old copy of 06 norton on my system that shows nothing as well. So I am lost PLEASE HELP BEFORE I FIND THAT SLEDGE HAMMER :( :( :( Thank you C Computer: E Machine T1150/ running xp home
Try booting your pc using a bootable cd (in the same drive). If it boots, try accessing the directories in the CD. If ok, your CD drive should be OK. Otherwise get your CD Drive repaired/replaced. You can also try a CD drive cleaner if nothing else works...
