After getting back home today I turn my computer on and it wont even go past the bios. It stalled when looking for primary and secondary devices. So I decided to unplug everything and see if it works and it worked. Added both hard drives and windows booted fine. But when I plugged in the DVD-ROM and Cd burner it would go past bios but then say DISK failure, please insert boot disk. I unplugged the burner and tried it with only the DVD ROM, same thing, then with nothing but only the cord plugged into the secondary slot on the mobo and still the same thing. Then I unplugged the cord out of the secondary slot on mobo and now comp works fine. I just dont have DVD-ROM or my CD Burner. Can someone help me out and tell me whats going on? I dont know if its the mobo, the wire or the devices, but if something is plugged into the secondary slot; even just the cord, the comp dosnt seem to like it. They were all working fine last night. And the comp still works fine now with the DVD-ROM and CD Burner unplugged. So what is the problem?
Your help is greatly appreciated!
