Hi,

The Computer is Fujitsu Siemens Scenic ET. Windows 98.

There is no CD-Rom listed in the Device Manager Tab. When I start the Cd player the following message appears on the screen:

"There is no cdrom player attached to this computer. Cd Player cannot start."

I have no idea as to what caused this problem??

Thanks in advance!!

Open the case and check the connections from your cdrom to the board, it could simply have come loose, make sure you earth yourself. Any light from the cdrom? There are 2 connections, a ribbon lead and a power lead. If you have a spare power lead from the power supply unit try that one in place. Also make sure the ribbon lead is firmly pushed onto the M/B.

Run your up to date virus scanner, I've known a Word Macro virus stop the CD-Rom from working....

Best of Luck
