My CD-DVD drive stopped working. I knew it was the weak part of the EMachine. I went with it because I liked the tower & I'm not a heavy CD/DVD user. It's been acting up. It's also time to make updated boot disks & clear out mp3s. I e mailed customer service & they came back with the old reinstall drivers thing, I knew that wasn't the problem, it didn't fix. Now they say I never registered - although I am signed up with emachine website, guess I skipped the official registration - & want a proof of purchase scanned & sent, which I suppose is the J&R invoice. I hate the idea of sending it back. Maybe they have a local authorized repair. I have no backup PC. My old one won't handle this DSL I'd have to go on dialup. I have been looking at cheaper netbooks, since I think one will be very useful to me. You can plug a mouse, VGA monitor, & ethernet line into a netbook.
Since it'll be awhile before the warranty/repair thing is straightened out, I ordered a plug in external DVD/CD burner. They're inexpensive & if do get a netbook it'll come in handy anyway.
