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

first check the CD you are using is boot able in other system if not write a bootable CD and insert the other thing is of the drive if the drive is old and the lens are weak the boot able cd wont work you will have to find anew drive to test that remove all the ide connectors or sata connectors from the motherboard except the CD drive insert the boot able cd and and restart the system then press del and enter bios setup and click advanced option and make sure the first boot drive is CD then save and exit in some motherboard you need to use f12 to select the boot device then click it and select the boot drive as cd ROM then click click it then you will see after post bios boot from cd ROM press enter it will ask for confirmation press enter again you system then boot from the cd now switch off the computer connect the hard disk and try again
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.
Usually when you buy a DVD ROM drive it comes with software. However, I bought a LG one and it didn't come with any software. All I can tell you is to update the system BIOS and the firmware that came with the drive. Look on the top part of the drive when you take it out of the system.
Go to the manufacturer's website and download updated firmware for the unit.
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.
