Having problems with your E-Machines T1090 PC Desktop ?

I have a very simple question? My T090 CD-Rom is it a player or is it both a recorder and player? I'm trying to save space on my comuter by organizing my photos on a Cd and it keeps telling me to put a cd in the machine when there's one already in there. I'm using a CD-RW by memorex.


Answers :

Is a player only
It is not unless you got it installed after you bought the computer, but just to be safe, you can check by looking at the cd-rom door or near it and you should find that there are things written on it like dvd-rom and compact disc. Look and see if it says cd-rw. If it does, than it should be able to read the disc and you may have to try a different one, but if it does not, that is why it is not detecting the blank disc.

My Gateway model w350a T-series laptop overheats whenever I use it too long. I can tell it is overheating because when i feel underneath of the left side it is extremely warm. I recently got a new hard drive after the fan in the old one failed, and I never had the overheat problem before then. Could there be a quick fix for this problem?
