CD/DVD Drives Not in My Computer

  1. For some reason, after installing some RAM into my computer, the bios no longer recognizes either of my cd drives. When I first turn on my computer, it gives an error message and asks whether or not I want to continue. Is there any way the cd drives can be recognized either inside of windows or in the BIOS?

    Hey, I went to the link on the other page, but it no longer works. How did you fix it?

    When you replaced the RAM, there is a chance that you accidentally loosened the IDE cable of the optical drives. Double check to make sure all connections are tight including the motherboard connection.
