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!

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.

AGP video card red lines


Hi, I apologize that you are having issue's with your computer. Lets see if we can get this issue resolved.
Be sure the tower is unplugged during cleaning.
  • First, if you haven't already done so be sure to use a can of compressed air to remove any dust from the graphics card as well as any other components inside the computer case.


  • Second make sure the graphics card is still properly seated into the AGP slot. Gently but firmly press down on the graphics card to ensure proper seating.

Once you have completed these two steps plug your tower back in and turn on the system. If you continue to see multicolored lines across the screen that means that the Graphics card will need to be replaced.
If you need any other help or need further clarification please don't hesitate to respond.

GT5670 Will Not Start...


test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty


even something as small as an electrical extension lead or a faulty fan lead can cause you problems computer needs all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly


a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working


check the CPU central processing unit make sure it has thermal paste and dust free secure seating


also check your computer ram modules and cmos battery make sure it has charge and they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


also check the keyboard and mouse batteries or ps2 or usb leads and connections if applicable
hope it helps

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.

"Cannot display this video mode"


first thing check all power cables and monitor cables are plugged in properly , also you might check the monitor cable , inside the medal housing to see if any pins were broke off while moving. this would be an easy fix , just buy a new cable. if not check to see if you have a video card and that it is not moving around and properly seated to motherboard. if not most pc's are onboard video which would be entirely different issue. most of the time when moving pc's its usually a simple fix.

When i turn the computer on the light on the monitor blinks green but i cant get it to turn on..i have a black screen.


It sounds like a video card problem
First of all check your cable from the monitor to your computer make sure it is connected ok.
Next if you have a video card check that it is seated properly push it down gently. or click on start, control panel device manager and then monitor check that your monitor is working ok if neccessary re-install your driver
