Question about Gateway Tabor 3 (4000532) Motherboard
I completely broke down my computer to a fix a problem.It turned out to be the video card not being seated properly. I really screwed up by not putting the cards back into their original slots.I have everything back to normal(I think)except for one problem. Both of my DVD's are not being seen in the MY COMPUTER window. I have power to the players and they will spin a disc but thats all. I've tried plugging into the primary as well as secondary IDE but no change. I tried downloading the software and drivers for the DVD's but they cant see them either. Somebody please help!
The should be plugged into the secondary if you have a hard drive on the primary. Make sure that then are being recognized in the bios also. There might be a setting that will enable them in there.

Tips for a great answer:
test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions SATA
the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty
even something as small as an electrical extension lead or a faulty fan lead can cause you problems computer needs all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly
a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working
check the CPU central processing unit make sure it has thermal paste and dust free secure seating
also check your computer ram modules and cmos battery make sure it has charge and they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
also check the keyboard and mouse batteries or ps2 or usb leads and connections if applicable
hope it helps
