I have a Dell Precision 340, P4 x86, 2G, 256k with 10G harddrive running windows 2000. I have a cdrom and a cdrw installed and they were working fine. I did notice every once in a while in windows explorer the drive letters would flicker, (showing a file folder for a split second) so I would restart the computer and then they were fine. Same thing happened again and I restarted the computer and now they do not show up at all. I rebooted and went in to BIOS and it shows that the cdrom is not installed. Everything else is working fine. I just do not have my cd roms showing up in the device manager or showing as installed in BIOS. Could it be the IDE cable?
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
