Does not detect module bay cd drive

\015 Hello, my dell Optiplex SX270 is having problems with the CD drive in it's module bay. the diag lights on the back insist it's a failure in the machine and not the drive. I got this thing at a redistribution center so it has no warranty what-so-ever, is there anything i can do to it? Oh and it came with the HDD WIPED CLEAN. so no operating system is on it.\015

Answers :

Well I decided to buy a new drive after a run of the dell diagnostic partition. (How it survived the wipe, I don't know.) and it came to a conclusion that the drive is dead. And that the POST (not diagnostic) lights on the back meant I had forgot to connect the keyboard AND mouse. I only had a keyboard for it then.

I spilled a little white wine on my Gateway laptop keyboard. I immediately turned it upside down, then removed the battery and power cord. I let it dry overnight (upside down). The next day I replaced the battery and power cord but it did not power on. I left it for a while (plugged in) and later went back and it started right up. However, I received a message at first saying that the system wasn't recognizing a battery present. After unplugging and plugging back in the message changed from 'no

I'm having a real problem using my Acer8920g set-up with dual channel memory. Basically I get a lot of screen freezes and blue screens when both these ram modules are installed. I have two identical Crucial memory sticks 2x2GB=4GB DDR2 PC2-5300 installed, they are brand new and were sold as a kit with customer support to be sure of compatibility. I downloaded Memtest86+ and when I boot with this program and run the memory tests no errors were detected on the individual modules, they were tested


When you test the ram modules separately, did you test them in the same bay...or have you tested both sticks separatly in both bays?this sounds like a non responsive ram bay and may indicate that you need a new motherboard. Check to see i ... PC Laptops
