Hi. New here.
I am resetting up my daughters old computer. It has been through a tough time at her mothers house. roaches, cigarette smoke, pets. General abuse like that. I have it in a clean environment here, and have cleaned it out the best I can. New HDD, and fresh install of windows 7 on it.
The only problem I have with it so far is the dvd drives. The one that was in it, worked at first, I think. I was able to open it, get the windows cd in and install that. but now what I attempt to open, it only opens about 2 inches out, if that. I thought the drive had gone bad, so I just threw it away, and took one out of my personal system to put in hers. This one I know worked on mine just fine, but does the exact same thing on her system.
Its not the chassis getting in the way at all, I made sure of that, The only thing that makes sense to me, would be the psu not getting enough power to it. but that doesnt make sense to me, as the system posts just fine...
Anyone have any clues as to what might be going on?
edit: The first dvd drive was hooked up through ata ribbon cables. The second drive from my system was hooked up through sata cables..
