This is my sisters computer, her computer just froze after rebooting one, I formatted the Harddrive then proceeded to re-install windows. But when I tried the cd-rom started working but not recognized by the computer. I used a windows98 started up disk with cdrom drivers on it. But computer does not see a drive and it does not load any drivers.AcaCandy said:
XP version, I do not see the cd rom in bios.norton850 said:Same two questions Which version of Windows are your using 98, XP...? And what are you trying to do. If you are using a version of Windows that has a bootable CD, check in BIOS to make sure that you have the CDROM drive listed as your first boot device. Or are you using a bootup floppy?
Thank you Norton850, That did it, I feel stupid; should have checked the cable, Thats the reason the Bios wouldn't see the Drive.norton850 said:If you don't see the drive in BIOS, then check all connections to the drive and from the drive to the motherboard. Did you do any work inside the case before this started?
