It would be helpful if you had some pictures of the back of your CD. There are basically three connections on the back of a CD or DVD. one is the sound cable, which is usually two or three pins, and there is only one way to plug it in. The next cable is data, and that also plugs in one way only. Final cable is power, and that one also goes in one way only.

The problem you may be having is if you have a mismatch between the drive and motherboard. The old standard is IDE/ATA, the new standard is SATA. If the cables are mismatched, you can buy adapters to convert from one standard to the other.

I booted my PC, but there is no display in the monitor. Tried with the other monitor but it all seems the same. The board have power but no display.


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections needs its connections continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

Before booting 3 long beeps 10 sec silent then 3 long beeps and so on


This is an issue that one of the devices is not properly seated on the board or it is not detecting them correctly.

To fix:

1. Remove all devices from the board. All cables coming from Hard drive/CD-rom. Remove the RAM and processor. LEAVE TH E POWER SUPPLY CABLES CONNECTED TO THE BOARD.

2. Re-seat the processor on the board.

3. Re seat the memory on the board.

4. Now re-seat the video card making sure that you push it firmly in place. Connect a monitor to the video output.

Try and boot the computer. If it boots and you see output on the screen then the issue is fixed.
If if does not boot you have a problem with one of the following: RAM, Processor, Video Card, or motherboard.

How do i change dvd rom unit?


  1. Locate where your CD or DVD ROM drive connects to the motherboard and make a note of this. Make sure you know exactly how the gray cable was connected.
  2. Have the new DVD ROM drive handy and unplug and/or slide out (depending on setup) the old one. Unplug the cables from the appropriate places. You do not have to unplug the one going to the DVD ROM. Wiggle back and forth gently and then pull out.
  3. Attach your new cables and reattach to motherboard and power supply where you removed the old ones.
  4. Reattach the power cord and cables, but do not close up the computer entirely yet.
  5. Test your new DVD player by placing a disc in the drive and ensuring the green light comes on and you hear it power on. If this happens without a problem, then close up the case. If not, then check to make sure cables are securely fastened in the correct motherboard slots and to the power supply

How can i make the audio out work on the Plextor px-708uf?


Hi,
dependant on your Sound Card.
do you have the cable connected From The DVD Drive ( spdif digital ) Or analogue audio Cable ? this is a thin cable usually grey/white cable coloured red/black/ground or earth.
This connects from The DVD to the motherboard ( CD ) Or to your Sound Card ( CD Or IN ) If you don,t have this Cable connected you won,t get Sound from DVD To Sound card or on-board Sound from The motherboard. Also check your sound-cards drivers Are Installed correctly. Finally open the sound manager In My Computer, And check that a device is selected, Or Isn,t Muted.

This should Solve Your problem.

Mike @ compurepair.
