Sound wont play and cd rom is missing light comes on no drive shows in my computer


i guess the question is not very clear to me .. but off what i can figure out, in your desktop
1) sound doesnt come
2) some problem with your cd from (kindly elaborate)
for the sound card there can several reasons for the sound not coming
1) Drivers not installed properly
2) you might have installed wrong drivers
3) (Happens in really old comps)if u have moved the cpu cabinet a lot lately, sound card could have been displaced from its socket, in such a case just take out the sound card clean it once and put it back again
Most of the times it is the driver which is not getting loaded properly, trying opening windows in safe mode, if the problem persists try reinstalling the driver.
and as per the CD rom problem kindly elaborate..
Cheers

Computer


The Drive you purchased is a SATA interface, the system you have uses Parallal ATA IDE interface.

You need to get a Drive with an IDE interface for that system.
