    When you put "any" disc what have you tried? A retail DVD? Burned CDs? A retail game?

    To try and determine the problem, you'll have to get your hands dirty and open up the PC, check all the cable connections, make sure fitting tightly.

    Another solution is to check where the drive is on the IDE chain and move it to a different IDE connector. Most older PC's will have two IDE interfaces for up to 4 IDE devices. Normally if only 1 hard drive it is "Primary Master".

    You then have "Primary Slave", "Secondary Master" and "Secondary slave". Usually with only 1 cd drive, it would be connected as a "Secondary Master".

    Try connecting the DVD as a "slave" device on an unused IDE connector, by moving the jumper to the "slave" position. See here for info.

    Still the same problems?
