Having problems with your Dell Dimension 1100 PC Desktop ?

CD Drive The cd drive does not read any type of cd's (audio or data). the drawer does open and close, , I have checked in the device manager and that is no help either because the only cd drive that appears may also be in the my computer file but, this drive only acts like a virtual drive as there is no response to the eject command when you right click on the icon. But it is not a virtual drive so i have no answers. USED THIS SOLUTION BUT DID NOT WORK !! DOES ANYONE HAVE A ANSWER TO THIS ? Demm
