Question about Dell Dimension 8250 PC Desktop
I added 2 x 128 mb memory card to my dell 8250 (bought at Nov 2002 with 2x256 mb card) and several days late, found i lost both DVD and CD RW Drivers.
i could open both DVD and CD RW tray by pressing the button there (i.e. it has power), but there's no sign of these drivers (not at my computer, device manager/hardward...), just couldn't find any sigh/icon of DVD and CD RW from my desktop. i deleted the regiester key, but it didn't solve the problem.
Hope you could help me, many thanks!
You might have knocked the cable our when installing the extra ram.
Take the cover off avail and find the cable that connects the motherboard to the first drive then then the second.
Push it in firmly at all 3 connections
If this doens't work try removing the ram and rebooting - see if your drives come back
