by disk drive do you mean CD drive?And you are running what?From the A drive
a scanreg/fix will only take it back 4 entries,there are limitations to what can be
achieved without a CD.If this is the problem I'd suggest seeking professional
help to replace the CD although if it was me i'd firstly check in Device Manager
for CD,click the+ next to it,& if there are no red X or yellow ! click Properties-under Device Status there may be a message telling you what the situation is.
"This Device Is Disabled" is the only message you don't want to see-that is
indicative of a device failure."the Drivers For This Device Are Not Installed" on
the other hand is a friendly message,which you will see according to the
symptoms as described.TIME OUT HERE for a coffee! Ok Aeiis,let us recap.
Does the CD drive make a noise& the indicator light come on?Will it just not
play?This can happen for a number of reasons.You will have to provide more
detailed information such as symptoms,make&model,& version of Windows.Also
whether you have the original Windows installation CD,& a Floppy Boot Disk.
