Dell Gx60 doesnt recorgnize hdd and cd rom

If both the HDD and CDRom are on the same cable, try replacing the cable. Check the jumpers to make sure they are set correctly as well. If neither of these work, it's likely your IDE controller (that is where you plug the ribbon cable into your motherboard) is defective. You can try to move it to the other IDE controller to see if that works. If not, you may have to replace the motherboard.... assuming you know the HDD and CDRom drives are good. I hope this helps!

    Hoew to install CD Drive

    You want to install a CD Drive. Ok you are Following these steps....
    1. Unplug the power cable from your power supply and open your Computer case.
    2. Determine which drive bay you are going to install a CD-ROM into. You should pick on of the uppermost drive bays
    3. Before you install a CD-ROM, make sure you have the proper jumper settings. You are only installing a single CD-ROM, set the jumpers as MASTER. The jumper settings are different for each CD-ROM drive, so consult your owner's manual so you know which pins to cover up.
    4. Once you have the jumpers set, install your CD-ROM in the computer's case. How you secure the CD-ROM in one of the uppermost drive bays depends on your case. Some CD-ROM drives have to be screwed into the drive bay.
    5. Connect the power to the back of the CD-ROM drive, then connect the ribbon cable to the back of the CD-ROM drive. Your ribbon cable has three connectors, one in the middle and one on each end. The middle connector is a SLAVE connector that is used if you would install an additional CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
    6. Connect one of the end connectors to the CD-ROM drive, and connect the other end connector to the appropriate spot on your motherboard. Note, hard drives and CD-ROM drives have the same style of connector on the motherboard. You want to connect your CD-ROM drive to the motherboard slot that isn't red or is the highest numbered of all the IDE slots.
    7. Power on your computer after you plug it in. Your computer should recognize the new CD-ROM. If it doesn't, go into your motherboards BIOS and search around for the IDE channels, they need to be set to automatically.
    Thank U

    ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard configuration

    Serial ATA drives are pretty much plug and play. You just need to install them and set them up as a primary drive in your bios settings. The IDE devices can be connected on the same ribbon cable but need to have jumpers set on the back to determine which device is primary or slave. If the IDE devices are on different ribbon cables then most likely the hard drive jumper setting should be set to master or master (single drive). The CD-ROM drive jumper on master. BIOS should detect all drives You also need to assign the boot order in BIOS. CD-ROM should be the first boot device to load and install the new OS onto the primary hard drive.

    sounds like the ribbon (cable) could be a controller issue, unplug the h.d.d. from controller head on mb and plug in the cd rom ribbon there boot into bios and look for the cd roms if the same problem is there replace the ribbon or you can check each one seperaely by running them off the primary ide as a slave to the hdd
    also swap ribbons with the hdd and see if there is still a prob. if these do not correct the prob you have a controller issue buy a controller pci card and use it or replace the board, the card is much cheaper or the last poss. is both cd roms are bad

    Not posting

    Maybe a silly question to ask; but did you connect the processor power lead, as unlike some processors this needs a seperate supply.
