Having problems with your Compaq Armada E500 Notebook ?

My computer won't boot up when I install my new DVD burner

\015 I bought a new internal dvd burner for my Compaq Armada E500 Laptop because I didn't want an external one. With the computer off, I take out my old DVD/CD ROM and put the new DVD/CD burner in. Then when I start my computer up, it says some kind of error message like "1789 Failure" or something like that. Then it says "Loading operating system failed" and it won't go past that. Please help me with this one because I just paid $60 for it off of ebay; or is any dvd burner compatible with the laptop I got, or do I just have no choice but to buy an external DVD burner? Please help!!!\015

Hi,
\015\012your armada can support optical devides as of dvd burners, but you will erase your bios/cmos memory in order to work.

\015\012locate your cmos battery, remove it for a few seconds turn on your laptop, this will cause your cmos memory clear out. then turn off and reconect your cmos battery, you will to set up your dates. If this didnt work maybe your optical drive does not function well, if you disconnect any optical device and your laptop startup well then you will to send it back to the vendor, because of a faulty in your dvd burner.
