: its a 5 yr old dell with windows 98 and by cd rom drive i'm guessing u mean brand? -- its a hp cd driver. i dont kno what the hell is wrong with it but ive scanned it ten times adn there are no viruses its like the d drive just disappeared for no reason. any ideas
: : First who made the cpu? What Operating System(Win95-XP)? Who made the cd-rom drive?
Does the CD ROM show up at POST? When the computer first boots & shows the ammount of memory, hard drives, etc etc it should say if it sees a CD drive. Make a boot floppy in WIndows & boot from it & load the CD driver & see if it will read a CD then. You need to determine if it's a hardware or Windows problem.
