Restored to factory default cd/rom dvd drive not installed driver not found

This is likely a BIOS problem.
If you restored factory defaults, the BIOS may have reset to a default configuration as well, one that may not include a setup for your CD drive. Assuming this is what happened, here are some steps to try to get it working again. Note that the pictures are from my computer, and what you will actually see will depend on yours, but it will often be similar.
1. Shut down your system if turned on.
2. Immediately after turning on your computer, look for instructions for 'Setup' or 'Configuration'. There will be the name of a key to press; often this is one of the F keys, such as F2, F5, or F12, or the DEL or ESC key. It varies from computer to computer. You must press the setup key before the screen advances. If you miss the prompt, simply reset your computer and try again. This will open the BIOS menu. hyblademin.png

3. Look for 'Drive Settings', 'Drive Configuration', or otherwise a block of settings referring to "Primary," "Secondary," "Master," and "Slave" drives, and use the keyboard to navigate the menus to get there. Be sure you read the instructions at the bottom of the screen so that you know which buttons to press. hyblademin_0.png

4. Again paying attention to the controls at the bottom of the screen, make sure each drive is set to AUTO. If that setting isn't available, try setting either the Primary or Secondary (whichever one shows no drive) to CD or CD/DVD.
5. Press the ESC button or see the instructions at the bottom of the screen to learn how to exit your BIOS. Make sure you select Save/Exit from the list of choices. If you accidentally change any other setting, simply choose Exit (do not save), and you will be put back at the boot screen. You may then try again.
I hope this helps. Good luck!

Need IDE jumber settings.

There is a little jumper block on the rear of a DVD. by IDE connector. on the case above there will be a Table marked . Master: Slave: CS. Now, you must set the jumper as to your drive's position. IE: Master or Slave, Master is on the plug at the END of the ribbon, the Slave is on the "Other" one. Accordingly the Master has the Master Jumper ON, the Slave the Slave Jumper ON. CS is Cable Select. It isn't all that used.

My samsung cd-rom sc-148c drive is not working. It is not listed in "My Computer". I have uninstalled and reinstalled it but that does not work.

Is the CD-ROM drive on a separate cable on the second IDE controller on the desktop motherboard? Then the jumper setting can be set to Master or Slave if no other drive is connector to this cable.
If the CD-ROM is also on the first IDE controller and IDE cable as the hard drive then the jumper setting on the CD-ROM must be set to SLAVE because the hard drive would be jumpered as MASTER.
Check the BIOS setting to see if the CD-ROM drive is detected.
If the CD-ROM still does not work after you checked and configured the CD-ROM drive, then is is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Reinstalling the original cd rom that came in the computer. do i need to change the jumper settings. it is a samsung sc-148

That depends upon the IDE cable you are attaching the CD ROM to.
There are two IDE cables attached to the motherboard, on IDE 1 connector/cable will be your boot hard drive (C drive) and this will be jumpered to Master and you can attach the CD ROM drive to this cable and set the jumper on the CD drive as Slave.
On IDE 2 connector/cable if there are no drives attached to this cable then the CD ROM drive can be jumpered as Master or Slave..
If there is another drive on the same IDE 2 cable then look at the jumper on that drive, if it is jumpered to Master then the CD drive needs to be jumpered to Slave. If the existing drive is jumpered as Slave then the CD drive needs to be jumpered as Master.
Both drives on the same IDE cable cannot be jumpered with the same setting.

Similar Problem

If it is a SATA drive, check the manual of the motherboard for SATA options/configuration in BIOS.
If it is an IDE drive, I suspect a bad configuration.
Set the jumper in CS (cable select) mode. You may connect it to the primary (end) or to the secondary (middle) connector of the IDE cable. Be sure there is no other drive on the same cable. Turn on your computer and verify if there is any changes in BIOS.
If the drive is not seen in BIOS the cable or the unit may be damaged or incompatible with your computer.
If the drive is seen in BIOS turn the computer off.
Now, you may add any other drive (if any) on the remaining connector on the same cable as it follows :
- set the jumper as Master or Cable Select if you connect the drive to the primary connector (end), or
- set the jumper as Slave or Cable Select if you connect the drive to the secondary connector (middle).

CD/DVD ROM disappears

I would think either your IDE cable is faulty or the IDE connector on the motherboard, try swapping cables or use a double IDE cable on IDE 1 connector. You may have a faulty drive ide connection input in which case a new DVD Rom is the answer, only cheap nowadays.
