    Motherboard: ASUS p4pe
    Processor: 2.8 P4 800 Mhz (Prescott???)
    RAM: PC2700

    *800MHz FSB CPU is not the default specification of this motherboard. If you decide to overclock with Intel÷Õ Pentium 4 processor on 800MHzm FSB, DDR400 DRAM module is a must.

    The motherboard wants to run the processor at 800 MHz, but the RAM is limiting you to 333Mhz. I would upgrade to PC-3200 (400 Mhz) RAM and make sure you have the latest BIOS installed.

    Not sure about the CDROM. It could be cables, IDE channel, jumper settings, BIOS settings, etc.

    Have you tried using the 'Add Hardware Wizard' to add the CD-Rom. When i just formatted my hard drive, my pc couldn't display the d:\ in the My computer folder but it just needed adding which takes seconds with no trouble.
