CD-ROM drive can be taken out by opening the tower side cover. ther is a cord at the back of the drive which needs to be pulled out. then from the front side pull the drive out. also be careful to check it has some screws at the side or not. if not then it should come out easily.

What do I set my CD-Rom Jumpers to in a Dimension 1100


Which is it a Dell 3000 or Dell 1100 ?

The jumper settings on the rear of the DVD drive; set the jumpers to "cable select" mode (if you are uncertain how to set the jumpers, check the documentation that came with your drive or look for a diagram printed on the drive itself). Insert your DVD drive into the selected drive bay and connect the IDE and power cables. Use the screws that came packaged with the drive to secure the component to the drive bay.

I have a dell dimension 3000. I wiped the computer, installed OS disc, but it says FAIL every time I try to do anything with the utilities & drivers disc. I also have no internet because it won't...


Right click on My Computer>Manage>Device Manager>does your CD-ROM have a yellow ? or ! on it?
If so, then you somehow need to install a driver for your computer to recognize your drive. If you can get an external CD-ROM that connects to a USB port, maybe you can install the drivers that way. Once that CD-ROM is working, then you can get the drivers installed for your modem. Hope that helps!

I need to buy replacement internal cd-rom for my Dell Dimension 8110


Any IDE CD-ROM Drive will do just fine... Just make sure you configure the jumpers according to your specific setup (look at the old drives jumpers if you don't know).

Need to replace cd-rom drive, how difficult? dell dimension 3000 pc desktop


It is not difficult to change cd/dvd drive.
Open cpu cabinet.
Then remove icd cable and power cable from cd/dvd drive.
Then remove screws of old cd/dvd drive.
Then you can pull it from cabinet from front side.
Then put your new cd/dvd drive into it's position then lock it with screws.
Then connect ide cable from motherboard and power cable to drive.
Then you can use it.
If you connect to drive with 1 ide cable means if you connect harddrive and cd/dvd drive with 1 cable then set harddrive as master and cd/dvd rom as slave you can set it slave with jumper settings.
It is in back side of cd/dvd drive.
There is instruction how to slave it with jumper.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.
