Alright this has been ongoing for a few months but I've ignored it up until now, I finally need some answers.
The problem first started when my computer would not boot up, no matter how much times I tried. Finally it started working again randomly.
Now every time I start up my PC it takes quite a long time to enter Windows compared to before, and sometimes I need to restart my PC a few times before it finally boots up.
When I'm up and running, everything works fine BUT when I load any type of CD into the disc drive it won't read, nothing shows up. Even in my bios it doesn't show my hard drive anywhere.
The question I have is if I buy a new disc drive, will all my files be deleted on my PC and will I have to re-install Windows 7 again? Cheers.
