Laptop disk controllers error

  tom0123 18:38 19 Oct 05

I have just purchased a compaq armarda M7oo laptop.For some reason it is installed with Windows 95 and when I change the floppy drive (which works ok)with the DVD rom drive in the drive bay I get the error message "disk controller failure".I have done the change over when the machine is closed down.
Could someone please tell me if this a hardware problem or is it software? By the way the DVD rom spins up when re booted but it does not show in my computer.
Can this be easily fixed?

Many thanks

TRy checking the BIOS settings see if the controller is enabled.
