How to get device manager to recognize SuperMulti DVD Burner? The player is installed (or was) and worked, but it suddenly vanished from device manager.

You should open the case and see if the power cable and sata cables are secured on the drive..... it is possible that the DVD drive control board has died. Considering there are many DVD burners out there for less than $20 the replacement should be cheap and simple.

Here's how to open and replace a CD/DVD drive from the HP site:

You may wish to label some of the cables with tape so you will not forget where they go when you put everything back together.

Move the computer to a sturdy work surface, and touch a grounded metal object to release any built-up static electricity.

Open the computer case by pulling the latch on the side of the unit if you have an XPS, or removing the thumb screws in the back if you have an Inspiron.

If you have a different type of Dell desktop or a very old model, you may need to consult the instruction manual for instructions on how to open the case.

Leave the data cable connected to the motherboard, and set both cables aside where you will be able to reach them easily.

Find the metal latch on the side of the existing DVD drive, and push it down.
The drive will slide out of the case.

Remove the screws from the old DVD drive, and put them into the same holes on the new drive.

Find the jumpers on the back of the drive.
The jumpers are an array of six small pins, with a plastic piece covering two of them.

Move the plastic piece so that it covers the pins marked "CS" or "Cable Select."
If the DVD drive will be only drive connected on the cable that is connected to the motherboard on the other end, the "MA" or "Master" setting will also work.

Slide the DVD drive into the computer case.
When it reaches the metal latch, it will snap into place.

How to connect400w ate power supply to cpu

Simple change. Just turn the computer off, remove the power cord, open the case. There are 4 screws that hold the power supply in place that you will have to remove then you can remove it. What where the cables are connected to the motherboard from the old power supply because you want to connect the cables from the new power supply in the same place.

Normally there will be two cables that plug into the motherboard and they will only fit in the correct place on the board. There will be a number of cables for the hard drive and dvd drive and it doesn't matter which one you use.

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
