Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex GX280 PC Desktop ?

Dvd/cd ROM hardware is not connected?

\015 This is a new computer - Optiplex GX280. This is the first time I've tried to use the CD player and cannot get it to run. When I went through the device manager program to troubleshoot, it said that the hardware was not connected. Can someone give me simple instructions for removing the case and connecting the dvd/cd?\015

Answers :

Dell has a very good support web site I had to learn how to use it but once I did I found that it was very helpful. When you open a Dell account make sure you give your service tag and it will keep track of other problems you might have. Use dell link and download manual. If this helps please rate me with FixYa. mysleuth
