Cant find dvd player

I completely broke down my computer to a fix a problem.It turned out to be the video card not being seated properly. I really screwed up by not putting the cards back into their original slots.I have everything back to normal(I think)except for one problem. Both of my DVD's are not being seen in the MY COMPUTER window. I have power to the players and they will spin a disc but thats all. I've tried plugging into the primary as well as secondary IDE but no change. I tried downloading the software and drivers for the DVD's but they cant see them either. Somebody please help!

Re: cant find dvd player

The should be plugged into the secondary if you have a hard drive on the primary. Make sure that then are being recognized in the bios also. There might be a setting that will enable them in there.

Is the CPU seated properly using the CPU golden triangle to the socket corner small triangle?

Before booting 3 long beeps 10 sec silent then 3 long beeps and so on

This is an issue that one of the devices is not properly seated on the board or it is not detecting them correctly.

To fix:

1. Remove all devices from the board. All cables coming from Hard drive/CD-rom. Remove the RAM and processor. LEAVE TH E POWER SUPPLY CABLES CONNECTED TO THE BOARD.

2. Re-seat the processor on the board.

3. Re seat the memory on the board.

4. Now re-seat the video card making sure that you push it firmly in place. Connect a monitor to the video output.

Try and boot the computer. If it boots and you see output on the screen then the issue is fixed.
If if does not boot you have a problem with one of the following: RAM, Processor, Video Card, or motherboard.

I installed everything the CPU, RAM, and everything else. Connected all switches at the right places and the BIOS is on normal operation. I turn on the computer and its a blank screen nothing shows up....

ok, looking at the specifications All I can recommend is the following. double check the Video card to make sure it is properly seated and that it does not exceed the capabilities of the motherboard. 2 Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the CPU and case wiring/power supply and turn the computer on. If the system completes the post test, you will hear at least 1 beep and should hear several for the video card not being connected, then start installing components 1 at a time till you find the one causing the problem. Start with the Video card and then the ram as these are most likely where your problem is unless you have a faulty power supply which will be the problem if you don't get a completed post with nothing else connected.

Steady beep code

if you're using an add-on video card, check it to make sure it's functioning. make sure the video is seated properly, if it's an add-on card. if the video you're using is onboard, try an add-on video card. also check your memory. make sure it's (they're) seated properly. careful of ESD. disconnect power from computer when doing all this. reconnect power to check if what you did worked, (naturally).

1 long and 5 short beeps

Check the video card and make sure it is fully seated. Check the memory chips and make sure they are fully seated. Usually the beeps are caused by bad/loose video card or memory.

The POST (power on self-test) routine checks the video card, RAM, keyboard, etc. and makes a series of beeps which if there are alot of beeps may sound like one long screechy sound. Reseat the video card if you are using an AGP card, the RAM, check the CPU release lever on the side of the socket as well as the heat sink/fan, the drive connectors and the keyboard. If it still screeches then remove all but one RAM stick, the drives except for one drive, if you have an onboard video connector use that and remove all other PCI cards and the AGP card. If no onboard video then leave the video card in ensuring that it is lined up and seated properly and connect the keyboard. Doing those steps should fix the problem or isolate the problem to the faulty component.

Computer Not Booting Up

Are you running one or two video cards?
If just one, 550w should be plenty of power. Double check ALL connections and make sure that the ram and all add-in cards are FULLY seated.
Also check to see if the video card requires its own power plug. If it does, it will have a connector on it for you to attach a lead from the power supply.
Also make sure that you have both power connectors plugged into the mainboard, theres one thats only 4 pins and then of course the larger one of 24 pins.
If all connection look good, then start with the basics. Break it down to just the power supply, mainboard, cpu, one stick of ram and the video card... unplug everything else from the mainboard including drive cables and any add-in cards. And check to make sure you processor is seated properly as well as the ram and video.
Let me know what you find.
