Hello,

An external drive would have a cable you connect to the back of your tower. An internal would not have this but would connect directly to your motherboard on the inside of your PC Tower.

Based on your follow up question it appears you want to connect to an inside pin out connection point. Is this right? And if so, what type of cable do you have that need to connect? Is it thin and round or flat and wide?

Thank you for your patience. One of use will be able to help you further once you post this information. Sorry, but we actually need to konw this in order to solve your problem.

Regards,

Hi I just bout a LG plasma modle 50pt250,ta and im trying to hook up my surround sound to it, but I dont know where to put the RCA cables on the back of the tv?


You can't do that, this tv doesn't have RCA audio outputs. You will have to connect it using the Optical output - an optical cable is required.

Emachine come up where it ask for me to hit f10 or f2 but it wont do anything. My keyboard or the mouse wont work. My emachine is a w3050. Looking for a diagram of how to hook hardrive cd and just to see...


Are you using a wireless mouse or keyboard? If so try using one that you plug in. As for the cd rom and hard drive all you need is one cable for each device hooked to seperate connectors on the motherboard. Ususally the hard drive will be sata which is a red cable and can only go onto one connector on the motherboard. the cdrom is an ide cable(grey usually) and there is a seperate connector for that on the mainboard.

Booting method of libretto50ct


Best thing to do is,try to get a Windows 98 cd from a friend who has some computer skills and ask them to temporarily put in a cdrom drive in order to begin the process of repair.You will also need them to hook up a floppy drive in your computer,as you will need the floppy disk,containing the files to load the cdrom drivers and setup files to do the repairs to your windows 98 operating system....if not,you may need to upgrade to windows xp or Vista.Good luck:)

Start up error message issue: floppy disk fail


if im correct, you havent installed a floppy drive yet...
while the comp is booting press esc (on some comps its F10 it should say on the screen) and access the boot sequence..in there there is a list of boot items...they always list floppy drive as the first boot drive in case you need to recover your comp...remove floppy drive from your boot list making sure that your hardrive (C) is first drive to boot.
After you get your comp set up, you may want to change that sequence in case you ever have problems with your HDD

I cannot boot windows xp


Hi praph_wicked, normal order would be, floppy drive first, CDROM second & Primary hard disk drive third.
How ever if your bios does not comply you can always press the F8 key every two seconds & that should bring up (Please select boot device). Which will look like this;

54d9788.jpg
Choose the CDROM drive with the windows CD in it.
If you have just one CDROM drive, make sure the jumper on the back side of the CDROM is set to "Master". If you have two CDROM drives connected, set one as master & the other to slave.
If using an IDE cable for the two CDROM drives. The CDROM at the end of the data connector is to be set as master, the 2nd CDROM connects to the next IDE connector & Its jumper is set to slave.

Good luck!
Mike

Ilunable to read from hard drive or cdrom from p4i65g


Try changing the IDE cable which connects your CDROM to motherboard. Also make sure that Master/slave configuration are properly set if both the hard disk and the cdrom are connected with a single cable

Boot problem - Win98SE


change the boot sequence in bios set up ...
keep in this order
first boot device as floppy
2.hard disk
3.cdrom

then save it and then have a check it should work ..
you have not mention hard disk here so i think the hard disk is not detected there may be some loose contact inside and it is not connected properly so it is not able to verify DMI pool ...
if so connect the hard disk properly then then have a check it will surely work..........
