Question about Computers & Internet
I have recently installed a Gigabyte S -series motherboard on my PC which only has one Ide connection so had to get ide cable with 2 connectors to connect Hard drive and cd-rw.
I started the PC up and fans started whirring and everything seemed fine so I went to open CD-RW to put in in Motherboard Chipsets,Drivers CD and CD-RW drawer will not open seems dead.
A friend asked if i had changed jumper settings on HD & CD-RW which I hadnt, so tried changinging jumper setting on HD from CS to Master and CD-RW to Slave from CS.
Restarted PC and still nothing.
I have bought another CD-RW to see if that was the problem but still nothing.
Any ideas on how I can cure this problem as until I can load the Motherboard drivers I wont be able to use my PC.
Hi, please check the power connector to the drive. if it is ok, restart the pc, enter BIOS setup, check whether the drive is detected or not in the drive configuration. if not there, check the jumper settings once again. for the new motherboards with one IDE and SATA interfaces, jumper settings are important. once i had the same problem.
