Customer Question

I have owned this computer for twelve years and this is the first time I've had any problems. I can't get any cd to mount, I have tried everything I can think of.

It sounds like your CD drive has failed. One way to find out is putting the CD in and trying to boot from it by restarting holding the C key. If it boots ok from the CD then the CD drive is ok.

In your already tried section you said you tried reiinstalling Mac OS 8.5. When you did that did the computer start up from the CD?
