Gus Lg and bios problem

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
Sincerely
Gus Gutierrez

Hi,
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

Problem


Try removing the software for the printer again and disconnect the USB cable from the computer. Reinstall the software and after its finished reinstalling, reconnect the USB cable to computer. Many USB printers require you to install the software first without the printer connected to the computer.

Doesn't detecting ram


The problem is either:
The ram is not compatible with your system
The ram is faulty
The motherboard is faulty
The power supply is faulty

I suggest that you try the following:
Blow the computer out with canned air, especially the ram slots
Try different ram.

I have a P3 at 500MHz and was wondering with this Motherboard,


The motherboard has three, dual in-line memory module (DIMM) sockets. Minimum memory size is 16 MB; maximum memory size is 768 MB. The largest DIMM supported at this time is 256 MB using unbuffered 128 Mbit technology parts. The BIOS automatically detects memory type, size, and speed.

The motherboard supports the following memory features:
  • 168-pin DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
  • 66 or 100 MHz SDRAM
  • Non-ECC (64-bit) and ECC (72-bit) memory
  • 3.3 V memory only
  • Unbuffered Single- or double-sided DIMMs in the following sizes:


DIMM Size Non-ECC Configuration ECC Configuration 16 MB 2M x 64 2M x 72 32 MB 4M x 64 4M x 72 64 MB 8M x 64 8M x 72 128 MB 16M x 64 16M x 72 256MB 32M x 64 32M x 72

Synchronous DRAM (SDRAM) can be installed in one, two, or three sockets. EDO DIMMs are not supported. Memory size and speed can vary between sockets.

Note: Intel® Pentium® II processors with 100 MHz front-side bus should be paired only with 100 MHz SDRAM. Processors with 66 MHz front-side bus can be paired with either 66 MHz or 100 MHz SDRAM.

All memory components and DIMMs used with the Intel® SE440BX-2 motherboard should comply with the PC SDRAM specifications. These include: the PC SDRAM Specification (memory component specific), the PC Unbuffered DIMM Specification, and the PC Serial Presence Detect Specification.

Note: It is recommended that SPD memory DIMMs be used with the SE440BX-2 motherboard. However, the BIOS will allow the use of non-SPD DIMM memory.

So the max you can go is 3 x 256 MB.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate fixya.

DVD and CD RW Driver are not working


You might have knocked the cable our when installing the extra ram.

Take the cover off avail and find the cable that connects the motherboard to the first drive then then the second.

Push it in firmly at all 3 connections

If this doens't work try removing the ram and rebooting - see if your drives come back
