first of all cheack in device manager to see if there is a driver conflict
you can get to it by going
start--> control panel --> system--> hardware tab--> device manager then in device manager expand the DVD/CD drives and see if there is driver conflict i think from memory it is marked with a yellow question mark? this could be one of the problems or maybe it is not being rcognised in the bios
in the bios (by hitting delete or f4 or somethign similar at the post screen) look around and see if you can find the auto detect settings and if it asks you to detect harware or somthing and hit that it may show up then
sorry i cant be more detalied with the bios instructions they vary so much!
see what happens and post back

During post (one of the first steps) after the memory test, it will list the ide and sata devices in this order
see if it shows up in that list. One other thing, make sure the jumper is set to whatever ide position it is at (slave or master)
Thats all the help I can provide right now, gl!

something about memory
varifying ide drives
Primary master [some numbers]
the primary master will list the serial number of your boot hd. One of the other 3 will list your dvd drive and any other drives you have on there. This information is also in your BIOS under CMOS settings. report back on anything you look at...
