Computer is a HP Compaq Presario Desktop
Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 3 and legal.
Yesterday all was well and the last thing to happen on shutting down was a Windows Update which I let happen then the computor shut down as normal.
Today I had only just uninstalled Nero 7 as I had a problem with it and I put in the Nero DVD to reinstall, E Drive, and nothing.
I checked Device Manager and there is the exclamation mark in a yellow circle.
Plugged in an external dvd drive and got the same as above.
Ran SCANNOW but it just checked everything and shut itself down after checking.
I can if needs be run a dvd in my laptop and transfer work from that to the desktop.
Not overly worried as most of my dvds are backed up to external drives and flash drives which are running as normal.
Can you help?
