Ok, about a month ago, our cd drive wouldnt close itself, what i mean is that when you pushed the little button, the tray would pop out, and you put the disc in, but the tray wouldnt retract when you pushed the button again. So we had to push the tray in by ourselves.And the cd drive wouldnt read the disc, it would make a spinning sound, but nothing would happen.So we were all pretty mad b/c the computer was only 1 1/2 years old and not alot of junk on it. So we left it. Just a few days ago, my brother notices there was no sound. If we tried to play music or video from windows media, or anything, we got a little message that said "cannot play because of problem with your sound device". Even on MSN messenger when a person logs in, all you hear is a little "blink" from the area where you put cds and stuff inside...but our cd drive worked! we could put in Cds and it would read them! WE DID ABSOLUTLEY NOTHING TO FIX IT! So it seems that the cd drive problem replaced itself with the audio problem(which the audio/sound device has always been perfect before)Does anyone know how to fix this?Or what caused this?Could it be a virus? Your help would be GREATLY appreaciated!
Thanks for your time,
