    In boot device priority the ONLY device that shows up is the FLOPPYand hd. Cable is connected to cd-rom and connected to the motherboard...cd-rom powers, and the led blinks accordingly, but it is not in my computer, device manager or bios. Is that part of my board fried? Or, does my board need cd-rom drivers for it to automatically detect the cd-rom?

    Intel D845GLLY Board, XP HE OS, P4 Processor

    It could be that your CD/DVD drive is causing this problem. If the leds of the CD/DVD is blinking the CD/DVD (the disk) is not recognised and hangs the whole system. Try to disconnect the CD/DVD and check the master slave jumpers. If the system starts you may either have a problem with the CD/DVD or your cable. Don't be surprised if you reconnect the cable the problem has vanished. Very often the cable is also the cause.
