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).

Hard drive won't reboot (jumpers not set proper)


Just google your drive's make and model and search the results for a diagram of the jumper settings.
If you have a SATA drive, there ARE no jumpers. If the drive is a PATA, then if it's connected with another drive or cdrom, then make the cdrom 'slave' and the disk drive 'master'.
Check your bios setting sometimes bios changes the boot order esp. if bios doesn't find a boot disk- make sure you have your desired boot device showing in the boot setup.

You can change the boot up order of devices in the BIOS. Go into the BIOS setup then to Boot up order and move the CD/DVD dirve as the first boot device and the hard drive as the 2nd boot device.
Then you boot up with a disc in the CD/DVD drive.

My notebook cannot detect a cdrom drive .. I have formatted my laptop twice already but ' My Computer ' is also not showing any Cdrom drive ..the cdrom drive is opening but there is no detection watsoever...


restore to the factory defaults from bios...probably the device is disabled ...also you may take a look into device manager ( my comp-prop/ .....) to see if it allows you to restore or enable ...
so ...no matter if you reinstall the OS and format the hdd...if its disabled from bios...the installing process..ignores the cd drive ...its like you have 2 Lan cards and you disabled one for to use the new one ...or something like this ...
there is some place where you can enable it ....but you will also have to reinstall the os ...or at least the driver for the cd drive ...so ...if you are not sure what Im talking about ...ask someone to take a look and restore the cd drive from bios...

CdRom drive not showing up on computer. CdRom works when push button but nothing comes up nor shows up in MY COMPUTER.


Check if the CD ROM is being detected in BIOS setup or not? In case it is not detected in BIOS, then make sure that all the cables that connect the ROM to the mainboard are okay. They should not be loose or broken. You may also try replacing the cables.

In case BIOS detects it but windows is unable to detect it, check in Device Manager to see for any disabled or unknown devices. To enter device manager, click on Start >> select RUN and type "devmgmt.msc" without the quotes and press Ok. Enable back the device from there and then check.

I cannot boot windows xp


Hi praph_wicked, normal order would be, floppy drive first, CDROM second & Primary hard disk drive third.
How ever if your bios does not comply you can always press the F8 key every two seconds & that should bring up (Please select boot device). Which will look like this;

Choose the CDROM drive with the windows CD in it.
If you have just one CDROM drive, make sure the jumper on the back side of the CDROM is set to "Master". If you have two CDROM drives connected, set one as master & the other to slave.
If using an IDE cable for the two CDROM drives. The CDROM at the end of the data connector is to be set as master, the 2nd CDROM connects to the next IDE connector & Its jumper is set to slave.

Good luck!

My Cdrom id not detecting the hardware


Hi, Firstly have you recently installed this CDROM or has the problem suddenly occured on a previously working CDROM?

If it was previously working then perhaps the CD has faulted somehow, if you open the PC and unplug the drive and carefully re-plug it again and then reboot the system. Before you open any machine though make sure you are not going to void any warranty that you may have with your machine when you purchased it.

If it still does not work unplug the drive and uninstall the driver and reboot the system then trun it off again and then attache the drive again and see if Windows picks it up.

You could also try using another ribbon cable, ( the one that attaches the drive to the motherboard) as sometimes these fail too.
If you need any other help with this just let me know.

Will it boot from other CD's? If it is not booting from any CD, it's probably an issue of boot priority settings. If when booting, it says something like "press F8 for BBS", press F8. If it just shows a logo, try hitting ESC or TAB, and it should show a more details output that may include the "press .. for BBS". If there is no BBS message, then ... Enter the BIOS setup (pressing DEL, or the indicated keys) Look for a menu that says "Boot" or similar. There should be an item that indicates "Boot Devices" or "Boot Priority". It may show your hard drive, your CD-ROM, and a Floppy (whether or not one is installed). Make sure the CD-ROM is listed above the Hard Drive; this will cause it to check the CD-ROM as a possibility for booting, before checking the hard drive. It also adds a second or two to boot time, so it may not be that way by default. The BBS menu, if there is one, lets you choose the boot device on a per-startup basis, but it will go back to the BIOS settings the next time you reboot. Hence, you can leave it defaulted to the hard drive, and use the BBS menu when you know you want to boot from the CD. The only reason a BIOS update would fix this, is if there was a bug preventing this from working, which is unlikely but is a remote (0.2%) possibility.

Used Dell Dimension 3000 drive issues


If you mean you need to install windows, you need to set your cdrom drive as first boot device in advanced bios settings or it will try to boot into a non-existent windows. Make sure your hdd is showing as the master drive, save settings and exit bios. Re-boot pc with windows disc in cd drive and hit enter when prompted to boot from cd.
