Thread: Cd Drive Is Broken

  1. #1
    My CD drive has been broken for a while. For some reason, I can now see the G drive in My Computer, before it wasn't there. The cd drive won't open, and the green light only goes on when the computer starts up. I manually opened the cd drive and put a cd in, and it didn't work.

    I've opened up the computer (took off the cover part so I can see all the wires). I'm not sure what it is. Could it be a virus or something electrical?

    hmm...its definately not a virus. Can teh drive be opened if your just sitting in teh bios or while the computer is loading before windows has sarted up? if not that would eliminate drive problems...

    can you tell us the config of ur drives (eg. 1 hard drive, 2 cd-rom) and how many partitions then what the config of the drives are in My Computer? that would help us to understand the G:\ drive problem.

    PUT A BULLET IN IT AND GET A NEW ONE. THEY ARE CHEAP ENOUGH NOW.
