I just learned of this topic on BTS and I am having a PC issue you folks may be able to help me out with. I have a Dell Dimension 4400, Pent. 4 1.69
processor 512 mb ddram 128 AVI Catalyst Video Card, 160GB Seagate Hard drive which I bought about 7 years ago. I have been upgrading it and keeping
it functional, and have yet to have any issues installing new components, until last month.
I recently recieved another Dell (not sure on the details) that had a DVD rom in it. so I pulled it out and installed it into my second bay (below my
original CD rom drive). After booting up I had no DVD rom and had lost my CD rom. I have the drivers for both downloaded, but my PC locks up on
1st) is there a way to get my DVD and CD rom to work again?
2nd) is my Processor to slow to handle what a DVD rom needs?
3rd) why won't my CD-rom show back up with the DVD rom disconnected?
I am sooooo at a loss at this point and ANY advice would be much appreciated! I know a little about PC's but I've never been trained or anything
