Hi,

When you interrupt the boot sequence and go to the BIOS screen, does it recognize that there is a device at that point. If not it looks like the CD drive is U/S. If it does recognise it at BIOS ... try reloading the drives for the CD ... or upgrade to the latest.

Cheers,
Ripface.

Windows 2000 and XP and Vista and 7 _all_ should recognize _all_ CD/DVD drives, automatically.

Check the electrical power connector.
If you push the open/close button, does it open/close the tray?

Check the "data" cable connector to the drive.
Check the "data" cable connector to the motherboard.

If the drive is a "parallel-ATA" drive, check the jumpers (MAster or SLave or CableSelect).

Try to connect the drive to a different computer.

If it is a "new" device (not a "used" device), return it to the merchant, for warranty repairs.

Cd/dvd drive


You can see a hole located on the tray of the cd rom drive. Commonly seen beside the button to eject the cd out. Grab a small pin and push the hole and this should eject the tray. Close the tray again by pressing the button. Eject it using the button. If everything still failed, call up Dell to have the CD Rom Drive replaced.
