Re: CD-ROM icon missing on screen


Can you see it in your device manager? if you can't then its a physical problem which means you will need to double check your physical connections between the cdrom and your motherboard as well as the power connections.
Another way to double check is go to your bios and see if the biois detects your cdrom. If it doesnt then i think you cdrom is dead.

After replacing my psu (was old and it shorted out) my LG CD-ROM GCR-8523B doesn't work. It has power but the computer doesn't recognize it..?

It is possible that when psu shorted it shorted part of the mother board. Try going into device manager right on the cd-rom in the list and choose search for new hard ware in the drop down menu. If this doesn't work go back into device manager right click the cd-rom and uninstall the cd-rom and reboot the pc. If it does not auto find the cd-rom that way, the mother board is probably messed up. Oh yeah try unplugging the ribbon cable for the cd-rom from the mother board and plug it back in also.

Please rate, and write testimonial if you feel the need to, if this was helpful.
Thank You

May i use graphics card wid my 945 gcnl mother board plz help me

yes you can use graphic card such as (AGP) if your motherboard has AGP slot on the motherboard, before installing the graphic card, goto CMOS setup by pressing F2 or Del key while your system bootups and disable the onboard display in the setup and save it, then switch off your computer, then install the graphic card and start your computer hope your computer will works fine.

CD-ROM icon missing from My Computer. I have this problem now. Originally there was no problem. The drive is okay. It's a software problem.

Indeed it is a software problem. This was a known issue with Microsoft, and you can follow this link to download the patch that will rectify the problem.

Vista no longer recognizes my CD-ROM

"...manual driver update..." ... from the device's included driver disk? Or from a web-source? If web-source, how long ago and from where?
" found the hardware but was still unable to load driver software..." ... So Windows does recognize it then? Unable to load what .. the driver(s)?
"...Vista just isn't recognizeing my CD-ROM at all" ... ??? If I understand correctly, Windows "device manager" recognizes when its deleted, then refreshed, but Vista doesn't recognize it? By this do you mean it's icon does not show up in "My Computer"?

Lot of questions I know, but it's necessary to define the trouble in order to know which direction to go next.


Here are a couple of very helpful and comprehensive software diagnostic tools for you to download at They are both FREEWARE and the same tools licensed to Nero for inclusion in their software products.

Installation: Simply extract/unzip the file to any chosen directory and run the executable (*.EXE).

1. "Nero DiscSpeed". Thoroughly tests speed and performance of your optical drives(s).
- Refer to the program's Help for guidance.
- User guide also available at
- Here's a quick shorthand:
a. File > Options > Standard Tests > Choose which tests you wish to run (if unsure, use the default settings), then "OK"
b. Click "Start"

2. "Nero DriveSpeed". Adjust/control your drive's spin /up/down times and noise levels.


You need to get the latest and best driver package, then re-install. If you can provide the make/model/series of the drive, I can provide you with a reliable source to download.

Please report back, and in all likelyhood we'll get you some joy.

CDROM Not support for 945 GCNL intel Board

Hey there shivanand, the problem you have seems to related to the bios setup. Try restarting and entering setup page when prompted (F2). Search for the boot sequence setting and enter it. Adjust your setting to have your hard drive as primary boot device. Save the changes and exit to continue setup. Hope it helps. Good Luck!

Cd drive

First verify the CD rom is correctly installed in your computer, access "Start" - "Control Panel" after "System" then "Hardware" after "Devices Manager" in list localize CD-ROM and see your drive, if not in list, your drive is incorrectly installed or damage has occured, verify the data and power cable has plugged, if the cable is ok, try buy a new cable or change the "slave/master" in mother board.
