When I try to start my computer it starts up and then says do you want to setup XP or run Windows XP and i click Setup windows XP because I just recently got a new mother board, processor, and ram for my computer. When I click setup it says checking system and then goes to the blue screen and then it comes up as install windows. So i click on that and then it says There is not a CD-ROM drive. I have checked all of my cables and they are conected right and the light turns on when i start my computer. I was wondering if I can get my computer to recognize my CD-ROM. I dont know if it has something to do with my BIOS or what. I would really like it if someone could help me get this working.

Thanks

Greetings! Can you get into the bios? Usually this is done by pressing the del key during boot up. You just got a new motherboard and the manual that came with it should tell you how to do that. Check the bios configurations. You need to make sure boot to cd is the first boot option. :tazz:

Hey -LastRESORT,

If you recently built the computer, did you check to see the if the jumpers on your cd-rom is properly setup.

I usualy forget to check.
