My desktop is not finding the cd rom hardware plz help it tried 2 cd romz but non was recognized plz help i use xp service 3 dell optiplex gx240


If you have the power cable connected to the cdrom and the data cable (ide or sata) then as long as the cd rom drive is working it should be detected automatically. If the back of the cdrom has a jumper make sure it is set to cable select. Finally go into bios (hit F2 when you see the Dell Logo) and see if there is a setting to enable the cdrom drive. It may have been disabled for some reason. If these fail then its possible the cd drive is bad.

Computer not reading the hard drives or cd rom drives


You first need to make sure that inside, the hard drives and cd roms' connectors are all firmly seated.

When you first turn on your PC, you can normally enter the BIOS mode, (before windows) by pressing the del key or f2 key. Once there you can make sure that the drives are being recognized. If they are, you would need to go to the boot section and enable hard drives and cdroms.

If they are not recognized,
Old IDE hard-drives (the ones with lots of pins on the back) (newer ones are called SATA and have plastic connectors) .. Old ide hard drives had a special jumper (little plastic rectangle on two pins) to indicate if it would run as a master or a slave drive. So your two drives should be connected accordingly.

If all the above sounds too complicated you would need to contact a friend savvy in the area.

Can't boot with Cd-Rom unable to install windows XP


Well, maybe I can try, thus in your bios setting you can boot using usb cdrom? Or maybe its time to change your cdrom drive already. If you can borrow a good spare cdrom. Take this in for the meantime in exchange for your installed cdrom. Maybe your cdrom drive is faulty. Then if this is ok, it is now easy for you to get on.

Second option, you can take out your harddrive prime it, then have a partition (say d:\) with a copy of full copy of xp installer, and other important installer just have it foldered. Then I assume you can boot using a floppy drive with win98 rescue disk. After booting goto harddrive partition with xp installer. then click setup and set it up in c:\ . Then your go other software, installed it manually.

I do this coz it much faster to installed using harddrive and also it is only in xp.

Hope this helps. comments if I miss something.

Motherboard fails to see Hard Drive...please help


Sounds like you lost an ide channel, swap the ide cables around, primary to secondary and secondary to primary. and see if it recognizes the hard drives and not the cdrom.

I lost an IDE channel and had to install a sata hard drive or run the hard drive and cdrom on the same ribbon. If you run HD and CDROM on same ribbon set both to CS (cable select)

Machine won't recognize CD-ROM after harddrive format


You have to change it in the bios, press F2 or DEL on startup depending on your bios type. The bios screen then will have second line of advanced bios settings, in here you need to select the cdrom as the first boot device, by using the up down arrows or pageup/down or '+or-' keys. Press ESC when cdrom selected and save settings when propmted. The system will re boot so ensure the cd is in the drive and press enter when prompted to start with cdrom.
