I got a comp that was bound for the techs grave. I borrowed some parts from a friend and built the computer back up. Most of the parts were used but connecting everything up, everything seemed fine but 2 CD ROM s, one that was originally there, stopped working. I thought it was the motherboard that's the problem but I haven't got another motherboard that I can prove that theory. I'm stuck cause I can't install an OS, tried using a USB stick to install, the computer stares at you (Doesn't do anything). Please help asap.!!

Oh, and tried using different cables, or swapping the master with the slave but nothing works.

Hi there,

Have you tried with another cd rom drive except those two?while trying with usb what happens?more information please.

Yeah, as I said, It was once one CD ROM. It used to work with the previous motherboard. But since it's now fried, I'm getting nowhere. I put another CD ROM that's still a used one, an ancient one, it still doesnt work. I used a different IDE cable but no fruits. Any other Ideas?
