Question about PC Desktops
When you start your computer, read the message that flash quickly at the top and bottom of your screen. There should be a message telling you to press one of the 'F' keys to enter setup, usually F2 if you have windows XP.
When you get into setup, your mouse will no longer work, so you will have to use the up, down and side to side arrow keys to move your selections. Look for 'drive configurations' or something along those lines, highlight it, click enter, and just check to make sure that the cdrom drives are listed and that it does not say disabled next to them. If everything looks good press the escape key, arrow over to exit, hit enter, then save and exit, and enter.
The setup screen is tricky to work with, if you change a setting it could cause your computer to run differently than you are accustomed to, so if you are not comfortable just try replacing one of the drives to see if it works, if it does then you do not need to go into setup.
Any other questions please ask!
