Question about Computers & Internet
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.
Good Luck Skippkon
