Re: I can not get my cd drive to open nor the motherboard...

Take a paper clip and straighten it out and put it in the tiny hole and push. It will open the cd drive.

My Mercury Motherboard CD is not working. I have just installed the new Hard Disk and trying to install the drivers, but I am not able to do so. Please help me with this asap. Regards, Dillip...

Download the drivers from here:

If the CD DRIVE is not working, replace it
IF the CD itself is not working, throw it away

Burn the drivers you downloaded to a CD for later use (when you have replaced the CD drive)

I want to install sound drive in my system motherbaord mercury PVM7


For installing the sound drive to your motherboard please insert the CD which you got for the motherboard. if you can run it in AUTO mode so that it installs on its own.

If cannot do in Auto mode then open the driver CD ,it will contain sound driver setup file so you can install by double clicking it.

ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard configuration

Serial ATA drives are pretty much plug and play. You just need to install them and set them up as a primary drive in your bios settings. The IDE devices can be connected on the same ribbon cable but need to have jumpers set on the back to determine which device is primary or slave. If the IDE devices are on different ribbon cables then most likely the hard drive jumper setting should be set to master or master (single drive). The CD-ROM drive jumper on master. BIOS should detect all drives You also need to assign the boot order in BIOS. CD-ROM should be the first boot device to load and install the new OS onto the primary hard drive.

Installed new mother board.

If you did the assemble of your new pc than its time to install an operating system to your hard disk.

For this you should have a bootable cd of windows.
And than boot from the CD and than install a fresh window.

Installatin problem xp

do you still have the other hard disk? Is xp installed there?
Then you can use the old disk as master and the new disk as slave disk.
Don't you have another hard drive? Then you just need your xp cd and put it in your cd drive. start computer and installation will automatically start. Make sure BIOS is set to boot from cd

if you need more help, just reply
