My computer did not detect the cd ROM drive and the internet connection also says that server not detected. i was using P1wimax modem which indicates that the connection is ok since all the 3 light are ON, furthermore the wiggy desktop linked to the p1 modem was of no problem connecting using another computer in the same house. It happens after i clean off the dust by vacuum cleaner.
i was using windows 2000, intel Pentium 4.20GHz, Realtex RTL8139, Phoenix Award BIOS v6.00PG and NVIDIa.
i hope my input info will be adequate to solve my case, thank you.
When you opened up your box for cleaning maybe you accidentally unpluged an I/O cable?
Try this. Boot up your computer and watch if the little green (usually) light on your Cd-rom flashes up. Then try opening it by pressing the button infront. If all that goes well then it means the power in it is still connected. So open it again and re-attach any cables that are loose.
I think i have to agree on your great suggestion - probably i accidentally unpluged an I/O cable while vacuuming it?
Initially i'll need to Boot up the computer and watch the little green light on the cd-ROM flashes up. Then i'll try to open it by pressing the button infront as you said. i havn't do this before. Anyway that is worth a try. If all of it goes fine then it means the power is still connected. Lastly open it again and re-attach any cables that are loose.
