Question about Dell Inspiron 531s Desktop Computer
It seems like you have multiple problems:
1. DVD-ROM drive not accessing the disk
2. unable to "disable" the "floppy" drive in BIOS SETUP
3. not recognizing anything connected to SATA1 port
It's time to take your computer to a qualified technician, for professional trouble-shooting.
Is your DELL computer still under warranty? If so, exercise the warranty.
Or, maybe you should just remove the "new" disk-drive, the RAM, the DVD-drive, and then responsibly "recycle" the old computer, and purchase a brand-new system, repurposing the disk/RAM/DVD components.
