    I just had to install a new Power Supply into my computer. I upgraded a bit from the one I had before. The specs match the previous one only it's a 500 Watt model instead of 250 Watts.

    Here is my problem.

    Everything is working except my two CD-ROMs. The Bios is showing they are not installed and Windows add-hardware cannot find them. They don't show up anywhere and even if you manually type them in they still don't show. I've checked all the cables and power and everything is the way it should be. No jumpers were moving everything was left in it's original place just installed the new supply. The drives ARE getting power and are funcitoning mechanically, it's just the computer cannot find either of them. Anyone run into this problem? I've done everything I can think of to get them to work. Let me know if any of you have an idea what I can do.
