Re: No DVD-ROM boot

If you have put a Windows system disc in your dvd drive, then re boot your pc should find your cd then say press enter, but if it's stopping before you get there, an error has occured. Did you hear 2 beeps(not together) Go back into the bios and go into the 'standard cmos settings' and at the bottom you will see a line saying 'halt on all errors'. Also check that your HD drives are listed as they should be; and not an old drive, if you have changed your drive that is. Dissable this and save settings and try booting again to your dvd drive.

I have sata dvd writer.when i connect it my computer does not boot.does intel D102ggc2 supports sata dvd writer?

You're Intel motherboard does support up to 4 SATA hard disk drives including SATA CD-ROM / DVD-ROM drive, reader/writers. This MB also includes two serial ATA IDE ports.
The most likely reason you're system is not booting is because all SATA ports are all seen as Master drives. By connecting the SATA DVD-ROM drive the bios auto configured the SATA ports.
You'll need to enter the bios when you're system boots-up. Press the F2 key on you're keyboard right after hearing a single beep. You will than enter the bios main menu. Listed at the main menu are devices connect to the motherboard. (Instruction on how to move around in the bios is listed at the bottom of the screen). Mainly, the hard disk drive or (drives) and the SATA DVD writer. You'll need to open the Boot tab. Look for boot order. You want the boot order set like so;
First boot device: [Floppy disk] drive; if one is connected.
Second Boot device: [Primary Hard Disk] drive.
(The drive with windows installed on it). (This drive may be ATA IDE or SATA; you did not provide that information).
Third Boot device: [DVD-Rom] drive. Save and exit the bios. The system will auto restart.
You're windows operating system should load correctly after the auto re-start.
The SATA data cable and the SATA power cable should be checked for good connection. It only takes a little bump to make either loose.
Here is the link to Intel for you're motherboard;

Good luck!

Once you reset the bios everything goes to manufactures default settings. You will need to make some changes within the bios. You'll need the help of the manual. See page 3-20.
If your operating system is loaded on to the ATA IDE drive make sure you set bios settings as follows:
Connect the ATA IDE to MB primary master IDE port.
Connect the ATA SATA drive to the MB's first SATA port.

ATA Configuration
Set as, [P-ATA+S-ATA]
S-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the SATA controller.
P-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the IDE controller.
On-chip IDE configuration, "ATA Configuration = [P-ATA+S-ATA]".
Next go to Boot menu. Make sure the ATA IDE drive is chosen as boot device three.
First boot device [Floppy] (If you have a floppy disk drive connected.)
Second boot device would be [DVD/CD-ROM] drive. This should be connected to the MB's secondary IDE port & the DVD/CD-ROM drives Master/Slave jumper, set to Master.
Third boot device [ATA IDE drive]
If your boot drive is the SATA drive than set: third boot device to the SATA drive.
(Hard disk drive with operating system loaded on it).
Save your changes & exit the bios.
Keep in mind all ATA SATA drives are seen as Master drives. SATA drives are seen by the SATA controller & in order by their connection to the SATA port number.
Save & exit the bios. The system will auto restart. Windows should start.

Problem with sata HDD probably?

check the bios settings first. if you can see your sata hdd and dvd rom drive then you can install it with no problem. or else try to replace the cables of the hdd if the hdd is not showing up in the bios.
also check that the hdd is set to master drive and dvd also set to master as they are on different connections.

New sata LG dvd room,it work correctly,but i can't boot from it

In your bios change the settings for boot order, 

1: DVD Rom
2: n/a
3: n/a

This will force a boot off the only drive available which is the dvd rom.

Upgrade to ram

It's probably high density memory, it's a common problem amongst bargain hunters. There's more about it at the link below:

eBay Guides - Myth Low Density vs High Density memory modules

You'd be better off getting your memory from somewhere such as ebuyer or microdirect.

Hope that helps. Please remember to rate this solution if you found it useful. Thanks for using FixYa,

M7NCD ULTRA raid drivers

If the SATA drive is operating in 3.0 Gbps mode and your motherboard can only support 1.5 Gbps mode, the drive will not be detected in BIOS or XP. Try jumpering the drive to SATA 1.5 Gbps mode. The label on your hard drive should indicate which pins should be shorted to achieve this setting; if not, look up your particular model on WD's website to find the manual.

System is no boot neither with cd-rom nor hard disk

Hi, Based of your post/description and assuming not hardware problem, you may have to set up the priority boot device in the BIOS to CD. This will tell your mb to look for a boot medium from the cd first. This is normally in the Advance Setup/1st Boot Device. Of course soon as installed, you have to boot from the HD next time. Good luck and kind regards.
