Hp-Compaq d530 Cd/Dvd bootup problem...

I can't figure this out for my life. I recently upgraded my bios to v2.43 for a new 3.2 Intel HT (Prescott) processor. I have 2.5g ram, 120g + 80g IDE and 500g SATA harddrives, Benq 1620 and HP 530r DVD\CDrom burners, with an AGP Nvidia 5200fx vid card and PCI Broadcom wireless NIC. Windows XP Pro was installed shortly prior to the upgrade. Now here's the fun part. Obviously, I booted up the cd to install XP. After the 3.2 processor upgrade and BIOS update I no longer can access either of the burners. I have tried numerous variations of one harddrive-one burner configs and dug through the shallow HP bios setup to no avail... Help.

Hello Mcs2315
Happy Holidays!
Well , it seem to be a problem with BIOS detection method, and type of drives you had. but yes, you can change for new ones, or go into SAFE MODE and uninstall the drives , and redetect when you up your PC on normal mode. if you have a particular drivers for them , install it at this point.
good luck

Go to control panel/system and uninstall your drives in question. Than from "action" tab, scan for changes. This will reinstall the drivers.

The picture on my Compaq monitor shifted 1 inch to the left. There is a one inch black space on the right side. I have a HP Compaq d530 CMT

click menu button on monitor. you will see a series of Icons (or scroll through a series of Icons) and one will be a square with a smaller square inside it that is half inside the larger and half out. Navigate to that Icon. Use the + or - buttons to move the screen in either direction until it evens out. Use + or - button to navigate back to exit and and then press menu button to exit screen. Or, sometimes you simply push the menu button a second time. These 3 buttons will be on the bottom front of the monitor. Good luck
