open case...seat cables...

pay attention if turning off or removing accessories stops it...do you have dual CD roms...(burner and regular) does it work in there...spend some $ on a power supply (man I am replacing alot of power supplys -but bad power hurts)

What do you mean P/S is nt working...you using battery ...is it losing its charge???

Is the CD removable...remove it check for bet pins or problems with the connections....


by accessories I mean ...NIC's modems and anything else you add in...if your power supply isnt working sounds like there could be other issues

cd cant read the cd

Sorry i meant i am using power supply so that wouldnt be the issue.
Yes it is a removable cd reader and i have checked the pins on it. I am also able to play audio cd on it and re install windows 2000 off of it but that is it.
i am lost as to what to do next..
there is no other issues going on
thanks O

Is the cd you are trying to open files from an original cd or is it a "burned" cd?

its a reader or a reader/writer...some older readers will have problems...heck some older reader/writers with burned CD's ...did it work before...


My plextor 8/4/32 is doing the same thing....and thats what i burned it on...wating for RW DVD to go mainstream and down in $$ to replace it...
