    So in January I got a Compaq GX5050 Gaming Tower. I know :gaycompaq: but it was through my Mom's work and it has an AMD 64 3800+, 6800gt, 200gb hd, etc...

    Well, my dvd-rw drive stopped working for no reason. It is a hp dvd writer dvd360. I can look at it in the hardware manager and it is still detected an everything, but it wont open. I've tried disconnected power and just running only this drive, but nothing works. Could it just be a faulty drive?

    It's possible that the drive is faulty...

    I would double check the connections to it and maybe try a different power cable off of the power supply.

    If you have access to another mahcine, you can install it in there to test.
