Configuring a cd rom

Can I configure a CD rom drive on a Dell Optilex GX200 PC Desktop to be able to install printer drivers? This PC desktop is a Pentium II.

    Perhaps let me say installing it so as to use it in an optilex GX200. Is it clearer now?

    I am not sure what you mean? there is no reason a working cd drive should need any extra configuration to be able to install drivers from.

I removed my battery from my Dell Dimension desk top, waited and then put battery back in and started my computer.


When you removed the battery your computer lost all of it's configuration settings. You have to go into the set-up menu and and select the devices that are installed on your computer. Such as floppy drive, CD drive, DVD drive. Also have to set date and time.

I have brought a new computer that dosnt have a cd rom. I have tried putting in two different cd-roms but they wont show up on my computer. i have tried downloading drivers to help but it still wont work.


Hello !

Your CD-ROM should have at least two cables connected to it: a power cable and IDE cable that should also be connected to your motherboard. Disconnect and reconnect the cables and be certain that they are snug.

Some computers will also have a small third cable used to interface the CD-ROM with the sound card. If the audio for your CD audio CDs is not working properly verify that this cable is not disconnected from the back of the CD-ROM.

Hope this helps.
