    I had my computer crash and took it to a computer store and had new hard drive installed. I have windows xp and my cdrom drive will not read my disks. do you think it is a software issue? Can I try to fix it with help from this forum? Thanks

    Welcome to TSG!!

    Was it like this from the repair shop? If so, return to them with a request for a fully functioning machine, as you were expecting one after paying them for their services.

    If this came about since then, let us know. There are various things to try. (One might be to pop open the case and be sure the cable(s) didn't fall off in transport.) Can you see it in BIOS?
