Step1 Turn off your computer and unplug. Remove the left and right side panels.

Step2 Remove the covering of the drive bay that you plan to use for your new CD/DVD Drive.

Step3 Set the jumper. This is the most difficult part involved with the installation process. If you only have one drive for your system set your jumper on the back the drive to Master. If you have two or more set it to slave. Consult your drives manual to see a picture of what a master/slave jumper configuration looks like. It is best to have the fastest drive set as the master.

Step4 After you have set the jumpers insert the drive into the empty drive bay you selected.

Step5 Secure your CD/DVD drive to your computers chassis with screws and a screwdriver. Mounting screws are typically included with your drive.

Step6 Locate and connect the required power and IDE cables to the back of the drive. These cables are keyed, meaning they are shaped specifically for that drive. It's impossible to install the wrong cables.

Step7 Put the side panels back on and plug your computer back in. Turn it on and your computer should recognize the new drives. If they are not recognized you may need to install the drivers, which are usually included on a CD that's included with your new drive.

I hope that helps. If you have any more questions, let me know.

How i'll start to formate my dv6 hp laptop 2163tx step by step i'hv my recovery cd


Put the CD/DVD in the machine and re-boot it. If it doesn't readt it from the start you'll need to change the boot drive order in the machine's BIOS Setup which you get to when the machine is just starting up (look for the key to press during the boot up process). After you set the CD ROM to be the first boot drive - the recovery disk should boot the machine and get you going.

Hello

OK, if you have the software disc and access to acomputer with a cd - rom, you can just copy the contents of the disc to a flash dive. If the data is on the flash drive, you can just plug the flash drive into your computer, and install the software from your flash drive.

PLease let me know if you need further assistance.

Kind regards

I need to format my pc at work it is a Dell Optiplex 360


1- you do know that doing this will wipe out your entire hard drive, right?
2- just put your install cd rom into the drive boot up the computer, your computer should see a bootable cd rom, if it does this, boot the disk and follow the on screen prompts, step 4 in the setup prgram will ask you which partition you wish to install to, at this point you have the option to wipe out the partition and start again from a fresh install.

Dell l400 problem


1.If you purchase an external USB CD drive you will not need to use your floppy discs for booting. 2. You can connect a USB CD drive to your system. 3. Your system will recognize any device plugged into your USB drive. 4. There is no CD drive available for internal installation in your computer. 5. With the USB CD drive plugged in and the windows installation disc inserted, your computer should take you through the setup program automatically.

Need instruction "HOW TO" install DVD-ROM multi function drive inToshiba Satellite M45-S265 PC Notebook


Unfortunately I was unable to find a step by step guide for you, however I found a picture of the backside of your laptop. There should be only one screw to remove the cd rom drive located where the red arrow is pointing;

Simply remove that screw and pull out the drive :-)

Cd-rom driver


Hello, you are so funny SeekPCRepair, when my neighbours went missing she thought it was personal (she has had some wicked pc issues last year!!!) Piap,has the CD rom icon dissapeared off the my computer window? This can mean evil gnomes have stolen it ( a fellow once said) but actually, it is something that sometimes just happens. It can be there one minute and gone the next.
You do need to go through the steps above as SeekPCRepair has said, but if nothing above works, and no entries at all appear for your drive under device manager ( found by clicking my computer, then view system info, then hardware, then device manager) and you have opened up your pc, and checked if the power ribbons (cables) are secure, and then looked for it again, it is either defective or a software issue. If all else fails, you can try editing the registry, as it may be corrupt driver files but first you need to try uninstalling the drive and reinstalling it if you can find the driver deatils. If this does not work, try downloading new driver from manufactures website. Install with this and see if it works. Post back if none of this works above and i will tell you how to step by step edit the registry to repair corrupt files.
