Power supply is ok but mother board doesnot power on. pressing power button pc doesnot on.


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?
one bad lead will end with a computer error a computer needs its connections continue its cycle and have an end to function properly

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem follow the troubleshooting procedure a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working

make sure your computer ram modules are securely seated with no dust in sockets also Cmos battery has charge with no dust in the socket
hope this helps

LG dvd drive is missing from MY COMPUTER folder. Pliz help me.


When you push the open/close button, does the tray open/close? Do any lamps light-up?
Any noises? If not, there's no electrical power reaching the device.

Turn your desktop computer off.
Disconnect the power-cable.
Remove the side-panel, to expose the "back" of the LG drive.
Check that the "data" and "power" cables are correctly connected to the drive,
and that the other end of the "data" cable is correctly connected to the motherboard.

Or, spend $40 to purchase a new CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace your "dead" device.

Dvd writer doesnot showing in bios


Theres' a couple things you need to double check. If you also have a CD-ROM drive connected to the same data cable as the DVD-ROM writer check the jumper on the back side of both. One should be pinned with a two pin jumper and set as a master and the second should be set as the slave. The back side of each ROM drive is marked M for Master, S for Slave & C for cable select. (Cable Select not suggested).
Double check the data cable. Remove and re-seat at the motherboard and at the ROM drives Parallel ATA data cable. Also check the power cable. Remove and re-seat. If everything is connected and the two pin jumper correctly and snug you should see the DVD listed in the BIOS.
Performed a restart and check your BIOS.

Dell 340 will not recognize my cd or dvd drive.


check if you see any light on the drive, if yes. then the power is there and then the problem is with the data cable of the cd drive. try to repalce the cd drive with another cd drive. if it still doesnot work and if the same cables work with the hard drive, then the cd drive has gone bad. and if the new drive also doesnot work then reinstalling the operating system should fix the problem only and only if it appears in the bios. if it doesnot appear in the bios. then the problem is not of the operating system. then its the motherboard.

Loose wire


Delva,

This is the cd audio cable most people currently do not need this cable. It connects on your motherboard to the back of your Optical drive (CD or DVD).

The purpose of this cable is for play CD's in you optical drive and it sends the audio DIRECT to the sound card rather than piping it through the data cable and then redirected to the audio sub system. Its kind of like having a short cut to the sound card but is only used if you play CD audio disc in your CD/DVD. MP3's and other data are still sent through the data cable.

Hopefully you found this useful

Dvd writter problem in asus motherboard


We likely have a "Jumper" issue here. On the back of the Drive right next to the Data cable there should be a group of jumper pins along with a general diagram or the jumper settings.

The diagram will likely be stamped in the metal next to the jumper group, or on the label.

The settings we are concerned with are CS (Cable Select), M (Master) and S (Slave)

First one I want you to try is CS move the jumper block to connect the pins for CS (If there is another drive on that cable, its jumper should be set to CS as well)

Now try to boot up again. If it works, you are good to go.

If not try the M setting on this drive. If it shares the cable the OTHER drive should be set to S this time.

Now try again. If still no luck reverse which is M and which is S

and try once more.

If ALL of these options fail, please post back here and we will try to assist you further.

Thanks
Dave
