Hi, I recently found a pc that had been thrown out for the dustman, i replaced some defective memory, added a new sound card, graphics card and added a wireless connection. The only remaining problem is that the DVD drive will not autoplay dvd games but will cd games. I have checked within the registry and the pc setup menu to ensure that the autoplay facility is enabled. I will if need be replace the drive, but if anybody has any suggestions, feel free.
The pc is a 1.7Ghz Athlon 2000+ processor it is running windows xp FX5200, 256MB PCI graphics card 1 gig of memory cd re-writer dvd rom drive
The games i am trying to load are UT2004 and Civilization IV, the pc meets the system requirements as printed on the dvd boxes. As for the drivers, that is one area i have considered. The disc drive has no manufacturers name printed on it and i have not been able to remove the drive from its bay to check it. I cannot find a method of releasing it from the bay, it is a front loaded into the bay, and i have removed the screws but i cannot shift it.
If somebody knows what i need to release on a TIME PC to get the drive from its bay i would be grateful, as i said i have removed the only holding screw i could find but i have been unable to shift it from its bay, it seems to be an externally fitted drive unlike my Dell. So if there is a clip or whatever i need to release so i can remove it i can certainly try another drive.
Hi, Thanks for the programme, but it still shows that there is an unspecified fault that it was unable to correct, so it looks like i will have to replace the drive when i can work out how to get the old drive out of its bay.
