Hi and welcome to TSG

Your title says problems with CD drives, but the error message is about hard drives, so you've got me confused.

Since you were working inside of your case check the connections (power and ide cables) going to the hard drives and CD drives and from the drives to the motherboard.

Dell 4550 will only handle up to 1 gig,2 512 sticks PC 2700 ram.That is as fast as the mobo will allow.Sounds like you mixed ram of different speed which should be ok as it will just clock down to the slowest stick of ram installed but Dells are very picky about the memory installed in them.Try removing the pc3200 stick and use what you had before or add correct speed ram for 4550. 400 front side bus takes pc2100 ram,533 front side bus takes pc2700 ram.
