you need to change the boot order of the computer to boot from cd instead of hard drive. When you first start up the computer you should see a message to press to enter setup the most common keys to do that are
Control + Escape
Alt + Escape
Control + Alt + Escape
Control + Alt + Enter
Once you've entered setup you should be able to find a selection something to the effect of boot order chage the fist boot selection or primary boot device to the hard drive so that it tries to boot from the hard drive instead of the CD ROM
probably unaligned position or irritated lens....... try to disassemble the CD housing, realigned the lens holder by pushing it to the rear end of the Disk Drive, then clean the lens with clean cotton buds with alcohol, let it dry by cleaning it with the dry clean cotton buds.... reasseble the housing... reconnect to PC.... re-detect the CD-ROM at the BIOS Set-up and....... Wella....... Goodluck!!
go http://www.cdrom-drivers.com/drivers/77/77204.htm (thats driverguide: name temp; pass 512) but that CD reader does not need drivers if you use windows98 Me 2000 XP 2003 or Vista... if its not working and your computer is ok you surely have connected something the wrong way.
After connecting it to the motherboard, switch on the pc, then go to properties of "my computer" then choose "Hardware" then choose device manager and over here u will come to know weather ur CD rom has been detected or not, if it has a question mark then it means u have to install drivers for it, but if ur using Win XP, i am sure it shd detect automatically and need not ask for drivers. Hoping a good rating from u....!!!
I guess you could try running and soldering new individual wires, from point to point where they come fromand go to... or try to obtain a replacement cable part from drive manufacturer. But with CD's being so inexpensive is it worth the time and hassle? I myself would get a new one.
If you have other Optical Drive in your computer like a CDwriter then installed it where that LG 52x CDROM drive. Observe if the same problem occur after 2 or 3 hours.
Try connecting the CDROM drive to the IDE ports (Secondary IDE port) like setting its jumper to Master.
Ensure that the connection to its power supply is firm.
Change the setting of your POWER OPTIONS which is under the CONTROL PANEL and change the setting for TURN-OFF HARD DISK to NEVER.
Have you set the jumpers at the back of the cdrom to slave if you already have another peice of hardware on the same idr cable, if not and only the cdrom is in the ide cable it should be set to master.
Also check the bios to see if it is recognised, press F2 or DEL on start up and see if it's there under standard bios settings.
