It all happened so sudden! I'm not sure about the problem here, but both my CD Roms are dead. My only guess is virus. When I turn my computer on after about 20 minutes of cooling time the cd roms are detected, after the computer is running in Windows XP for about 3 minutes they disapear without a trace. When I go into my computer when the computer first starts there they both are, 3 minutes later there gone. It did that up until recently when they both decided not to work at all anymore. No more cooling time. My most recent problem solved was a bad Power Supply, after I set the Vcore up to 10% 2 days later it died, and I figured it was a bad CPU, but it wasn't obviously. Could this have to do with anything on my CD Roms? IDE cables are in, and changed. IDE is in correct order because my motherboard won't let me switch them. Jumpers are in properly. Both have power, but undetected. (They both can be opend and closed) IDE cables are in securly. This has been going on for about 5 days. No virus found using 2 different anti-virus programs. ANY thoughts or ideas greatfully appreciated.
If worse comes to worse, I'll just use a spare hdd, and xfer everything over and start fresh, But if the cd rom isn't detected in the BIOS... I might just screw myself over without a computer at all *gasp* :eek:
