Cd Rom drives gone

by Anuraagii / January 22, 2005 8:22 AM PST

I have and HP8674F. Have two cd drives, M & N. They are gone from my computer. The Device Manager has a yellow triangle with an exclamation point in it. When I troubleshoot I get error code 39. Any ideas?
I'm not an advanced user, so I'd appreciate simple instructions and not a lot of acronyms, but rather the words spelled out. Thanks for your patience.

Two ways to approach this:

1) Reset the video resolutions and display properties to where they were before the change
2) Try using System Restore if XP is being used

Do you have any idea what made the drives disappear in the first place?

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?
