just have to switch the jumper on the drive....
I wonder if your disc is damaged to the point where it will not boot?
download RC.iso from the following link:http://www.thecomput...edic.com/rc.iso
You need to burn this image to a CD and boot your computer with it--this is different than burning a file to a CD. If you do not know how to burn an ISO image, then download the following program to another Windows XP machine, install it.
make certain you download the proper installation for your version of windows. Open MY COMPUTER, choose HELP > ABOUT. Note the service pack and get the appropriate version of the iso burner power toyhttp://isorecorder.a...isorecorder.htm
After installation, reboot, then right click the RC.iso file you downloaded above and choose COPY IMAGE TO CD.
Now, reboot your broken PC with that CD in the CD-ROM drive.
This will give you a recovery console to use to run
Insert the cd into the non-functioning PC
see if you gives you any chance to "press any key to boot from cd"
