1. The cd drive is good I took it out of a working unit the same time I was doing new install of xp pro expect problem is software but not from cd
2, To Eye see, cant boot and re load as suggested. If I could do this I would have no problem Thanks for reply.
ok people all the computer will do is start give me some start up screens. Key board and Mouse work. I can access set up and set default and optimum functions in set up. but I cant get it to read the cd. I have also tried using xp home and vista restore disks same result. Tried to get at it using flash drive but no success.
Also attempted cd drive using usb port no luck
] case closed problem resolved bad chip on mother board. Thanks to all for your suggestions
