Mother Board does not see BDRom can not format ard drive changed BD Rom and MotherBoard

As you see the list of what I have And a few other thing of course, but it does not work. The hard drives are empty and the MOBO does not all ways see the bd-rom,Orginally I figured it was a bad drive so I took it back to CompUSA and the computer they tried it and it worked I thought wow, They tried it two more times and it worked then it did not ok change the drive, But still the problem is the there and it comes up check cable check power Ok brand new PSU but we checked it and found an intermitt problem so we changed it and instead of it not seeing it every third time it see's it every third time. So, now we are thinking there is something wrong with the SATA ports on the MOBO so we change the motherboard and now it only sees the bdrom once in a while aany idea's? Email:

No power -- Dell Dimension 3000

There's a few things you can check, check your wall socket, make sure it is giving out good consisten electricity, not flickery. Make sure you have a surge protected plug box or ext. cord. You just can't buy any pwr supply because Dell has an extra pwr supply lead that goes to the mobo on many models. Standard supplies have one bundle that has a double row of wires on the connector that goes to the motherboard, and all the rest go to hard drive;CDrom drive;floppy;maybe a procesor fan. Check your connections, make sure they are proper, if that doesn't work, it could be something damaged on your motherboard and you might have to change it. Depending on how your power supply failed, it can actually do some damage on the other parts but check everything first before considering that.

I am Having problem restoring my dell 2400

Well you may have a bad mother board or IDE port to which the HDD is connected. If the CD is connected to the same IDE channel as the HDD, move it to IDE1 which is the second IDE channel. If it then recognizes your CD, IDE0 is bad and you need to replace your board. Let me know how things are connected inside the computer.

New cd rom doesn't work

Have any you added any drives to your computer recently? If so you'll have to check the jumper settings on your drives. If nothing has changed to your computer between the time it was working and when it stopped then you most likely have a dead drive.

But since you say the device manager sees your drive you'll need to go into your administrator tools in the control panel and select computer management. Under storage select drive management. If you see your drive listed but has no drive letter you can right-click the drive and assign a drive letter. The change should be immediate.
