It is possible that when psu shorted it shorted part of the mother board. Try going into device manager right on the cd-rom in the list and choose search for new hard ware in the drop down menu. If this doesn't work go back into device manager right click the cd-rom and uninstall the cd-rom and reboot the pc. If it does not auto find the cd-rom that way, the mother board is probably messed up. Oh yeah try unplugging the ribbon cable for the cd-rom from the mother board and plug it back in also.

probably itz either minor case of software corruption/improper ground/cpu fan.. or major case of faulty or defective main board/ram/daughter or addon card(s)..
..plz do check the following as in order:.. the Hardware part:.. 1)a)
in power-on mode, open/unplug the data/vga cable of the monitor from
cabinet..see if raster or 'osd' is appearing on the monitor screen..if
so monitor is ok..else replace the monitor and see..[not applicable in
case of laptop].. b) in case of laptop try to get output from
external display unit/monitor using vga port..if there's proper display
in there..the problem is probably with either the 'lcd' or 'ccfl' or
2) if u hv a graphics card, replace with a standby or onboard and see..[not applicable in case of laptop]..
3) unplug mains supply..pick open/remove the cmos battery..check (above +3v)..resit..
see if the ram(s) is loose/faulty..open clean/remove carbon &
or oxide formed on the teeth with an eraser n resit it..or replace with
a standby n see..
5) a) see if ur hdd is noisy or emitting any 'ticking' noise (like 'tuk tuk' or 'kirr kirr').. b) or if the system is not supporting either the newly installed device or itz software/driver /firmware if so, u need either a fresh os installation or ur hdd is likely to b replaced..
neatly..dust is non-uniform in nature n may cause
jam/short circuitry/excess resistance n many more..resulting an increase
7)open the CPU Heat-Sink with fan out of the
socket..put some "Heat Sink Compound" (available in local electronics
chip level spare market)between the cpu/processor and the CPU Heat Sink
*** fan..resit/fit it tightly in position..
8) on main/mother
board..see with a debug card for mb error..may b short..look for
defective capacitors(espabove1000mfd)/mosfets..go through the mb's
south bridge n the circuit lie around atx connector..the crystal clock
generator (if cpu isn't heating up)..
9) [in case of desktop] the
smps itself may b defective/faulty..check the outputs of smps viz. 0v
(black~ground); +12v(yellow); +5v (red, green~ps-on, violet~pg&
grey~sb); -12v (blue);-5v(white); +3.3v(orange)..the 'oscillator and
error amplifier ic',or pwm switching regulator circuit..look
for defective protector-transformer/resistance (esp 4.7k)/mosfet.. check the battery n adapter [main power], in case of laptops..
if u r not a professional, always better to seek advise from ur system admin/vendor....
yes you can use graphic card such as (AGP) if your motherboard has AGP slot on the motherboard, before installing the graphic card, goto CMOS setup by pressing F2 or Del key while your system bootups and disable the onboard display in the setup and save it, then switch off your computer, then install the graphic card and start your computer hope your computer will works fine.
Hey there shivanand, the problem you have seems to related to the bios setup. Try restarting and entering setup page when prompted (F2). Search for the boot sequence setting and enter it. Adjust your setting to have your hard drive as primary boot device. Save the changes and exit to continue setup. Hope it helps. Good Luck!
Can you see it in your device manager? if you can't then its a physical problem which means you will need to double check your physical connections between the cdrom and your motherboard as well as the power connections.
Another way to double check is go to your bios and see if the biois detects your cdrom. If it doesnt then i think you cdrom is dead.
