    when I unplug the unit, the computer works just fine..

  • henrikp89 May 13, 2009

    This one is the only unit of that sort in my machine. I inserted it in another machine and there the unit worked perfectly fine..

    My power supply is on 350W, could the reason be that it isn't enough to make my computer happy? Some other specifications:

    AMD X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+
    2x1024MB Ram
    380GB Hard Disk Drive
    Runs with Windows XP

    I have now also tried another IDE-cable and to disconnect one of my hard disk drives in order to minimize the use of power. But the computer still turns off about three seconds after pushing the power button.

Then only one more check to do before we can fault the new unit , the new unit should have jumpers at the back of it. If it is the second unit of that type installed ensure the jumper settings is set to slave and not master which is default. If it is the only unit (cd rom/dvd rw) then you have a faulty new unit. Best way to is to insert in another friends machine to double check before taking it back.

    Very unlikely , one sure way to know is only plug in the new unit to the power supply and switch it on and check.

Need to install second cd driver in desktop computer


It would be much simpler to remove your current CD-ROM drive, and install a CD/DVD-reader-writer combination drive.

1. Turn the computer off, and disconnect the AC power-cord.
2. Remove the side-panels from the case.
3. Disconnect the "power" and "data" cables from the back of the CD-ROM.
4. Remove the screws holding the current CD-ROM in position.
5. Slide the CD-ROM out the "front" of the case.
6. Slide the new device into place, until the face is "flush" with the front of the case.
7. Screw the device into position.
8. Connect the data and power cables.
9. Reconnect the AC power.

Windows will "find new hardware", and will adapt itself.

I'm putting cds into the drive but they won't run and when I go to 'My Computer' it's not showing the drive


Is it a new drive? Is the latest driver loaded for it? are the cables in correctly? are the jumpers set correctly? Is it recognized in the BIOS? If you answered YES to all but not even recognized in the BIOS then its the ribbon cable or the unit itself

My lexmark all in one printer wont install since i got a new e machine computer--i tried the disk and it stops at drivers--tried to do by computer add a printer without disk and still doesnt work


If you connect and turn on the printer then turn on your computer it should start the found new hardware wizard. don't do anything until or IF it asks you to install the disc, the make sure you direct it to find the files under the correct drive letter which is usually "D" or "E" .Good luck, .Dana

Dvd disk drive not showing in my computer


Hi!

The chances are that the drivers for them got corrupted and you can install them fron your motherboard cd. To install them go to Control panel-> add new hardware-> search for new hardware-> if it shows up then its good else add them from the list. It will then install the drivers from your motherboard cd (the cd you got with your system or from the cd you got with your disk drive).

If this doesn't help then check for the connectors(going into disk drive from power supply and motherboard) by opening your pc.

Please rate the solution.

Thanks

Cd rom has stopped working. the light is flashing as if it is working but the cd is not spinning.


Check the disk for scratches, and try other disks to make sure the problem is not unique to that one disk. If all disks fail, then double-click on My Computer, then double click on the CD-Rom drive and see if a CD will run. The "autorun" option may have been disabled, which is very noticeable if you've been used to this feature working. To re-enable autorun, right click on the cd-rom drive in My Computer, and go to device properties - recheck the autorun or autoplay option.

If none of the above resolve, then turn off your computer. Open up your computer with screwdriver. Unplug and replug the cd-rom driver. Restart computer. Test cd-rom drive again.

If it still fails, Make sure you are connected to the internet (I am assuming Windows XP - Vista may vary): Go to Start --> Control Panel --> Printers & Other Hardware --> System --> Hardware --> Device Manager --> DVD/CD Rom Drives - se if the drive has a yellow exclamation by it - if it does, then right click on the yellow exclamation, and click install drivers - windows will most likely find a solution

If all of the above fails, write back with more details, including model/manufatcurer of cd-rom drive, and model/manufatcurer of computer.

Dell laptop DVD_Rom not detected


well evidently you have a software problem, otherwise your dvd unit is broken, but lets hope not and try this:

you surely have the recovery CD or DVD that comes with your laptop and if you are clueless at computers you have to play attention on the following:

first is to ensure your unit is working and tha can be done by booting from any bootable CD. Just enter the bios if necessary, set the machine to boot first from cd and next from hd... then start with any bootable disc that you know is working. Windows installing disc can be, laptop recovery can be too... if it works now you know the problem is on the operative system and you need to focus on that.

try going to systems properties, then go to the exclametory sign and go properties with right button, navigate that options and if you are shown, ensure to enable DMA access mode. If you cant do this, just uninstall that device by clicking on the right button and selecting unninstal... and then do the same with any devices related to cds and ide devices... finally reboot your system and let windows put all that bach in place.

If this doesnt help you you might need to reinstall OS, so either backup your files and restart using the cd that comes with your computer or get back with more precise information, because yours is a very generic problem and many things can cause that.
