If its the ribbon cable itll tell you when you first turn the computer on. try going to setup in bios and see if it reads it there. i had a problem like this, i tried to have a dvd drive and a cd-rw drive together. i read on the dvd drive that it can be the only drive installed so i took the other one out and it worked fine.

TROUBLE SHOOT , WHY CD-ROM NOT WORKING


Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install.

Further troubleshooting?Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

Emachine dvd drive quit working says I'm missing


This driver is usually loaded with windows and is not available to the support site ..but you can try just in case..I think this is caused by a virus that attacked the drive ..and the fix is to engage the recovery partition or use a disk to reinstall the operation system ..I advice this way ..cause I did had this issue before ...more than once ..and even if you get to device manager and reinstall the driver from the system memory ..it is already affected and will do the same after a a few minutes..or to the next restart ..
let me know if you need something in order to proceed ..
I suggest to use the recovery cause it has a much simpler procedure ..
Good luck !

My emachine will burn a dvd, but the sound wont work with it. It used to work fine and suddenly, it wont work. Its not the file, because on one dvd, the sound was working fine, and halfway through it it...


sounds like the disk - not the recorder - - try cleaning the disk with windex -
also - try removing the DVD player from the list of divices -
go to divice manager - look for the DVD player - recorder - etc - - and select REMOVE - this will force the pc to reload the drivers for your unit.

After installing hard drive, monitor, keyboard, mouse not working


Have you tried to enter BIOS? Are you able to enter BIOS?? There may be an option you have to hit to enable SATA, and to select the boot device order, which may be messing things up.
Also, remember that STATIC ELECTRICITY is your enemy! Ground yourself when working inside the case.

Cd/dvd


Try deleting it from the Device Manager and rebooting. If Windows has eaten the driver, it will try to reinstall it during the reboot.
Follow this sequence:

- Start
- Control Panel
- System
- Hardware
- Device Manager

Locate the entry for DVD/CD-ROM Drives and expand the listing.
Highlight the drive(s) and delete them.

If the Plug & 'Pray' is working, Windows will 'find' a new device and install the basic drivers for it.
