When you connect two drives to a IDE cable, one of the must be 'master' and one 'slave', whichever is master will show up first and slave will be second.

If you're only using one drive, it needs to be set for 'single', (which may or may not be the same as 'master'.

Look on the back of the drives, near where the cable plugs in, and there'll be some pins with jumpers on them, there may be a C M S (in any order) by the sets of pins, the M and S are for Master and Slave.  The C setting requires a special cable, so we won't worry about it.  There may be something on the drive's label that says what the proper jumper setting is, check there.

Compact disc not woking when i put in a disc


Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

Can i install windows black on systemax desktop?


Yes... A Full Re-Install is Best. Works faster because it is cleaner. Do all of your updates before you intstall you Virus Software. Have a List of your Hardware as well in case you drivers dont load PnP. Would run faster with a new Hard Drive if you have the Budget.
