I have a ASROCK G31 945 intel MOther board , When i purchased i fiited with IDE CD/DVD Drive . INow is it possible to connect the SATA CD/DVD drive to my mother board. i have SATA connector on my MB ....


You need is an open slot for the drive, an available SATA slot / cord, and a SATA power. It may require you to go into BIOS, and in some cases a driver for the new drive. Don't forget the SATA drivers if you have XP.

Install cd rom


Looking at the motherboard as it is installed in your computer case;
Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right, White long PCI slots (2) to the Bottom;

Below the left corner of the Processor socket, is the connector on the motherboard for a Floppy Drive cable.

To the left of this connector, is the connector on the motherboard for the 20-pin ATX main power cable,

Below the left corner of this connector is a small rectangular female connector. CD1
This is where the audio cable from your optical drive (CD/DVD drive) connects to.

When I start my computer it starts beeping 3 times...and again....what can be the problem?....


the beeping sound is the post system searching for your hard drive and other connected devices
try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive and make sure your RAM is securely seated into its slots
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 are probably old and faulty ?

I cannot hear sound system play cds and videos


Every CD/DVD-ROM drive has an audio port opened. An audio cable connects to the back side of the CD/DVD-ROM and connects to the motherboard. Most MB's have two four pin audio ports, one slot white in color and a second black in color. As far as the CD/DVD-ROM not reading the disk. Make sure the disk is free from scratches; oils from you're fingers or just plain dust. Open the drawl and blow out the CD-ROM drive or buy a CD cleaner which will clean the internal laser. These days it’s hard to find a CD/DVD ROM drive with a warranty longer than 1 year. Most ppl buy a new one when it fails to read CD's.

What are the different parts of a motherboard?


The motherboard or PCB (Primary Circuit Board) is responsible for connecting all computer devices to the microprocessor. It supplies devices with power and allows the computer to react with them, Devices that can be used by connecting to the motherboard are: Storage devices, sound cards, graphic cards and hard disks.
Devices or components that are needed to make the computer work as it should, are inbuilt within the motherboard or can be connected to it using a socket or port. Listed below are sockets and ports that are available on the motherboard for connecting devices and , what that they are capable of doing.
PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) slot: Supports peripherals like sound cards, DVD decoders, and graphic accelerators with 32 bits at 33Mhz capabilities. There are usually anywhere from 1 to 6 PCI slots available on the motherboard.
AGP (Accelerated Graphic Port): This provides fast bus speed connectivity along with fast access to the main memory. It is designed for video cards that demand higher bandwidth.
Chipset-North Bridge: An integrated circuit that has special duties.
CPU (Central Processing Unit) socket: A socket specifically for connecting your computer processor.
DIMM (Double Inline Memory Module) slots, SIMM (Single Inline Memory Module) and RIMM: Different types of memory (RAM) can be installed into these slots.
Motherboard Battery: A battery compartment, which stores the battery used for storing data such as system date and time, when you shut down your system.
IDE Connector: Responsible for connecting the IDE cord used for hard disks, CD drives, and DVD drives.
Firewire header (IEEE 1394): A serial bus used to exchange digital and audio data with high performance abilities.
The following listed items are parts that are built within the motherboard with specific connective uses such as keyboards, mouse, and printers.
PS/2 Connectors: Each motherboard usually has 2 PS/2 connectors for the keyboard and the mouse.
USB (Universal Serial Bus) port: There are usually a couple of these ports located on each motherboard used for connecting pen drives and external hard drives, like Ipods or Mp3 players.
Parallel or (LPT) port: The place used to connect scanners and printers.
Game Port: The port to connect all gaming devices for example, a joystick.
Sound Card Connectors: Plug in your microphone or speakers here.
Display Connector: Connecting your monitor to the motherboard.
COM (Communication) port: The port designed to connect your mouse and modem.

Board comes on but it don't boot yet everything else seems to be working fine, why won't it boot?


Ensure you have hardisk and OS installed, take off any CD on CD Drive. If still won't work, try to re-seating the memory card and graphic card (if you use one in slot).
Check the Power and Data cable connection onto hardisk.

Replace A Hard Drive On E-Machines ?mperial motherboard glve


First, check the jumpers on the back of the drive to ensure that it's set for master. There will be a legend on the drive label explaining where the jumper needs to be to achieve this. If it has been used as a system drive previously you won't need to worry about this.

Second, physically fit the drive into the tower and connect the IDE ribbon cable. The motherboard end of the cable should connect to the primary IDE slot. To identify which one is primary look closely next to the two slots, they'll be marked IDE 0 and IDE 1. IDE 0 is primary. Connect a molex power connector to the back of the drive from the PSU.

Since this drive has been used previously you should now be able to install your chosen operating system from a CD or DVD. XP and Vista both have options for creating/deleting and formatting existing partitions during setup.

These are simplified instructions and assume that it is an IDE drive and not SATA and that no second hard drive will be installed on the same IDE bus. More detailed instructions can be found here:

I don't know the parts of the motherboard.


What motherboard would you like to know the layout of? Although, many motherboards are different, most of them have the same basic parts. From back to front, you have the communication ports; (usually from top to bottom, varies by manufacturer)mouse/keyboard, usb 1.0/1.1/2.0(make and model dependant) serial, paralell, vga/monitor, then sound: midi, headphone/speaker out, line out, microphone in.
then on the board, processor, somewhere near it, cache, i/o chip, north bride chip, wich is responsable for memory(ram) access, ide(cd rom/ hard drive access) ports and power connector/s,
memory slots
then the south bridge chip witch controls isa port(old), pci slot, agp/pci-e slot (video card) along with the cmos battery, bios, and various other slots/connectors (such as fan, power button and so on) and chips, wich vary by manufacturer and model.
