I am using a Intel SE440Bx 2 motherboard 128 mb ram, 120 mb maxtor HD.
After some repairs to my Pc's power supply, I can not see my LG 52X32X52 CD RW in My Pc window which is cinnected to the same IDE cable in which is connected the hard drive.
Let me know what is the bios configuration to get that unit connected.
Looking forward to hear from you soon on what the above concerns, I remain

I don't think it's your bios. I have killed a cd drive once just by taking it out of one computer and turning around and putting it back in another. I'm guessing it's the drive. Do you have another computer you can try it on . You realy don't have to install it just open the case and hook up the cables. You can set the drive on a book or something that woun't conduct electricity so it's not hanging by the cables. Befor you do this don't up plug the computer just turn it off on the back by the power supply. Touch the case first to ground your self and let you arm rest against the case while you working on ti that will take the static electricity away.Here is some thing else you could try. Get a knowen good cable and if you have another IDE connector in your computer use that one. Be sure the strip on the cable is pluged in on pin one of both ends. Pin one on most that I know of is next to the power plug.

You cant change the SMPS of this computer as it is built on big PCB and not a regular SMPS box. Then it has a supply for monitor too. And it is not required. Clean your RAM & reinsert it and re-install Win XP after low formating the drive. It will definately work And 'Intele', this is a useless, non upgradable & and non-repairable system and to upgrade it with PIII 700MHz CPU you got to add a small resistance to it which onl6y the dealer can do it for you. Now a days there are lots of used branded P4 systems available in the market - 'dirt cheap'. Dell Optiplex GX280 is one of the good option with P4 3.20GHz pinless (LGA775) CPU, 2GB DDR2 RAM, 160GB SATA drive with Dell usb Keyboard & mouse. Prevailing market price is app. Rs. 7000/- Add Rs. 2000/- for 17" used multimedia monitor. You can compare all this with Intel Dot Station. To reach the motherboard of Intel Dot Station one has to unscrew 32 screws. Its so complicated. Spares are not available - then why buy P-III these days?If you are in New Delhi, go & buy from Nehru Place.
if you have onboard graphics card that shares the ram memory with your graphics card then the configuration in the bios will determine how much memory is shared with your graphics card so you will lose memory there. Also windows xp does not always report the correct amount of memory so check with cpu z or wcpuid or another utility to check.
Also when you restart your computer when it detects the memory how much does it show that is installed there or if you go into the bios does it show the correct amount.
If it does not then it is not compatable and I would suggest going to www.crucial.com and selecting / getting the correct memory by selecting the correct computer / motherboard that you have.
Microsoft Windows XP - Pentium - RAM 128 MB - HD 210 MB

Intel Pentium - 133 MHz

These are the minimum requirements for your system to have if it has to support for installing pc suite...
