Re: my motherboard can't read any bootable dvd
You have to check
1) new DVD master/slave setting, it should be set to slave cause your old one set master
2) go bios setting check IDE device should display the DVD device at slave position.
3) start windows it should be there

pls note that these kind of problems are usually caused when either the xp cd disc is bad or the DVD/CD drive is weak. so pls kindly try with another cd drive and along side another bootable windows xp.
and all will bwell
Is the hard disk drive is in secondary slave? If yes, change it to master and your dvd is into slave. Refer to the jumper settings at the back on the drive. If not work, your bootable disk may defective. Try other a botable disk.
Did you try to move the small jumper next to the connector on the back of the DVD writer. Then try to choose different places to connect your DVD on the motherboard. Check if you have the right driver or reinstall it.
go to BIOS and enable the secondary drive auto detect.
if you manaully set the drive to primary, secondar. the system should be able to detect it as you have set it. if you select cable select or auto. the sytem will put the drive connected to the end of the IDE cable as primary.
Got another mouse you can try.
Another thing you should to is get online on another computer (of course), find and download the floppy version of Memtest86+ (not memtest86), unzip it and get it started. It will produce a bootable memory test diskette.
If you don't have a floppy drive, download the .iso version of the program and burn the .iso to a CD via Nero (or whatever you have).
The diskette or the CD cannot be read by Windows, so don't even try.
Simply boot up the problem computer using the diskette/cd and it will automatically check for memory problems.
If you see ANYTHING in Red, then you have a RAM problem.
Let me know what happens.
