If you need to install drivers.

Always get your drivers and specific software from the manufacturer of your Laptop, Notebook or Desktop. They are usually free of charge.

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, usually one is able to download if available, by model number, All available Driver downloads as required.

If the driver is not available, perhaps your manufacturer does not support the OS you are installing.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

I hope this helps

How do i install this drive?


Unplug the power cable from your power supply and open up your computer Don't forget to wear your antistatic wrist band. Determine which drive bay you are going to install a CD-ROM into. You should pick on of the uppermost drive bays. Before you install a CD-ROM, make sure you have the proper jumper settings. Since we 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. 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, while other cases come with brackets (like mine) to attach to the CD-ROM drive so that it slides into the drive bay and locks in place.


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.
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.





Power on your computer after you plug it in. Your computer should recognize the new CD-ROM. If it doesn't, Click start control panel administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question mark ? right click to update driver,roll back driver,or select properties general troubleshoot, select driver click to reinstall drivers click update driver
Hope this helps

I have a reconditionned DELL Precision M3400 laptop that was factory reset when I bought it. I have had to turn on all the hard drives etc. but I am having trouble getting the internal modem to turn on. It...


Usually the recondition, or refurbished product from Dell have been retested to ensure they meet all original factory specifications. I don't understand why your modem and cd rom drive don't work. How long had you purchased it? When you said you can't get internal modem to turn on, you meant it not working?
There are only two things could happen to each of them (modem and cd rom drive) For Modem: please check it through device manager, and modem to see if it has red x or yellow question mark, or says unknown device, if you do have one of these, you need to install correct driver. Please check your Dell service tag number (it is on white sticker on back of laptop), and go to dell.com, support, and select driver and downloads, key in your service tag number, and download the modem driver to install. If it still doesn't work, then the physical internal modem is the faulty one. For your CD rom drive, it should work with just standard driver preloaded by the OS, you don't need to install driver for. It is either dirty, needs to be cleaned by the CD room cleaner disc, or it is bad. You can try to reseat by trying to take whole thing out and insert it back in. If you have Dell diagnostic cd (usually comes with your laptop when ordered) to run hardware diagnostic to find out the faulty one.
This is the common issue with refurbished laptops (most common issue is with keyboard). When buying refurbished one, you have more chances to have some part issues. I suggest to reinstall modem driver to see if it works, and try to clean cd rom driver and reseat it, and hope for the best. Let me know the status Thanks

Usb rec. comes up yellow,in device manager


The device driver is needed, right click on the yellow and go to properties, then select update driver. Install the cd rom that came with the device in your computer cd rom drive. If the driver cannot be installed, compatability issue or you just don`t have it, then what you would have to do is try the device web site for an updated driver for your operating system, if you don`t know the maker of the device then your only chance is to do windows update, do all of them and hope windows can find a compatible driver for it. If you are running windows 7 32 bit you might be in luck, if you have 64 bit version, you might be out of luck for now, but keep trying.
