Recently i tried putting a cd into my cd rom drive and noticed that it didnt automatically load up. So i went into My Computer to try to manually load it and i found this:
As you can see there are no drives there. So ive been asking people for help on some other message boards and it was recommended that i ask here. I've already restarted a couple of times and looked for windows updates (windows xp[there were non]) and ive even looked inside my computer to see if the IDE cables had become unattached.
Now im pretty much a newbie at all computer stuff so i may need things explained to me in a newbie friendly manner. Thanks.
