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

When I start my computer it comes to the windows setup and then I press install windows. Then a message comes up on the other screen and says

"Setup cannot find a CD-ROM derive.

Make sure your cCD-ROM is on and properly connected to your computer. If it is a SCSI
devices are properly terminated.See your computer or SCSI ada[ter documetaion for more information.

Setup cannotcontinue. Press F3 to quit setup."

Then I press F3 and it restarts and then I check my cables again and it takes me threw the same process and I have checked the cables 3 times. Changed the cable and I have tryed 3 different CD-ROM drives.

Is there anything that I can do to get this to work?
