Hi Henrick,
Are you using the correct spec R.A.M.? or is it faulty.
I relate to your problem and all looks fine apart from memory.
Don't rule out the possibility of a Mother Board fault? I have had similar& severe grief in the past, tried all routes and replaced loads only to find sata circuit connection dry joint/ un soldered. (So New Motherboard under warranty)
Good Luck!

My PC is an IDE. the dvd/cd burner went bad. I baught this new LG burner today with an IDE to SATA adapter with the needed cables. I installed it all and it wont even come on, not working. So I am guessing...


It is not the dvd driver problem but more likely to have the adapter issue. The generic Microsoft cd/dvd dirver should be fine, I never have to install and driver for the replacement DVD/CD drive on any of my repair works.
Did you try this setup with another PC?

I want to install a 2nd dvd burner. But I don't know how to hook it up. My new pc does not have the ribbons like my old one does.


If your 2nd DVD burner is on IDE interface, you may need to get an IDE to SATA cable. Please refer to the picture below as to how it looks like:

I Can Not See My [D:] drive Icon ....sec. HD


Did you just open the hard drive and install it out of the box? If that is what you did, then the computer its self will see the hardware but vista or any other operating system for that matter wont read it without a partition hence no drive letter....download a partition program like easius partition manager or partition commander and create your partition and windows will be able to see the drive. Once windows see's the drive then you have to format it! Once its formatted then your up and running. I hope this helps, comment back and let me know...thanks

Trying to start computer up and I get a diskette drive 0 seek failure message SATO 0 ST3160815as 4.ada SATO 1 HL-DT-ST DVD+/RW GSA-HT3H B103 SATO 2 NONE SATO 3 NONE


Go into the bios of your Dell and ensure that the Sata HDD 0 is being seen by the bios and that it has not been switched with the DVD. Make sure that the sata cables on the main board are plugged in correctly the hard drive should be in sata port 0 and on some dells it's sata port 1. Make sure in the bios that the Sata HDD 0 is enabled.

Hope this helps.

Possible to upgrade?


Any system can be upgraded, just depends on how much money you want to spend, and what format you wish to choose. Systemax systems were not bad systems. New motherboards (MB) allowing the latest CPU, and memory configurations are possible in any box, providing the power supply can handle the load. What type of OS comes into play, as unix based alternatives are growing daily with users exploring that option. Most of the world uses Microsoft OS's, and yes your system can but upgraded to use Vista if need be. I build PCs and normally use a brand new box to start with. State of the art gaming or business apps, your system is already out dated the minute it was made. New this or that comes out at top dollar. Is it necessarry to have every option and gadget? Usually not, so tell your builder what you plan to do with the PC and let them put together the machine built to YOUR liking. Hard Drives are light years from the 10 MB behemoths of the 80's, the terabyte drives of today are under $100. If the data is on your old hard drive, it can be ported over to the new system so you don't lose the precious pictures of you and yours from way back when. It comes down to what you want and what options are available at the time you make up your mind. Chances are, if money isn't a question, you'll end up with a new machine. You can get the data off the old PC, and then can give your old system to a friend or relative and they can learn on it. Or you can gut the old systemax box and put in new power supply, dvd burners, MB, memory, CPU, TB HD, new multi option a: drive with card readers, the latest in graphics cards. All the buzzes and whistles, liquid cooling if you so prefer. What ever floats your boat, just comes down to how much money you want to spend and how elaborate you want your system. But to answer your question, anything can be upgraded.

Install more memory, install new dvd/cd drives


As far as the memory in your system goes, each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-8500, DDR2 PC2-5300, or DDR2 PC2-6400 with a maximum of 1GB per slot. You can add two 1GB modules to your present configuration if you choose.

For complete info go to: Crucial for Gateway 835GM

You can also go to www.crucial.com and run their scan feature. It's safe and works well.

Note that you should install memory in matched pairs, so if you should buy 2 more 512MB modules, make sure they are the same kind/type. Also realize that should you upgrade to 4GB of RAM, unless you have a 64-bit OS, it may not recognize all 4GB.


As for the drives, any "big box" electronics store will have the drives you need/want. Even Wal-Mart has a decent selection of internal drives. The drives should work with no problem. Gateway and other companies put fancy bezels on the front, but they have buttons and hinged doors that will allow most drives to be used. One thing you need to make sure of is what type of drive you need. That is, what type of controller is used, either IDE or the newer SATA. If you are not sure, comment back and i will try to research it further.

I have failed to copy pictures on my Sony 48x/24x/48x/16x DVD Rom. The system says there is no disc. I am using TDK DVD-R 1-16x speed 4.7 GB single sided.


Hey,

looking at the details you have posted about your cd drive, its a cd burner with dvd reading cability.

can you post me the model of your drive to confirm this, it says on top of the drive, maybe on the front.

or simply try a CD instead of a DVD

Thanks,
Ekse
