Replace the CD ROM!!! you can get a CD burner for $30.
I have an old COMPAQ Deskpro with windows ME.The problem is the cd rom will not work with any game,music cd or a driver disc.Not even my Compaq Restore cd works.THE ONLY cd that fires up is my WINDOWS ME.I have gone into Device Manager,it says everything is working and there are no problems.Everytime i try to use the cd rom,message comes up Please put a disc in .DISC is already in,nothing happens.I am getting desperate,as i need to install an ISP Broadband and cannot,so am stuck with slow dial up. HELP !!!!!!!!!!!
