Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I can't run dvd's, cd's or any software! What do i do? did my hard drive crash??? I had to run a system recovery on my computer. I was able to up load from my software disks. But then one day my hard drives just stopped reading any of them. Everything else seems to work fine, but I can't add anything new to my computer for software or music or movies.


Answers :

Your hard drive doesnt read your software disks per-ce.
