Having problems with your Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop ?

No CD ROM shows on device manager

\015 AMD Athlon Processor on an old Compaq Presario 5WV275 desktop. Upgraded OS to XP Pro many years ago. Maxed memory to a mere 768MB. It's a real oldie but I can't afford to replace it. Having many issues, no space, freezing and malfunctioning devices. Most require access to original software to repair the problems and the CD/Rom ceased working 2 years ago. I have another Compaq with an athlon processor that is much newer on my network and it's CR/ROM disappeared too.\015
