Added DVD/RW and both CD rom and DVD will not read

by artsr3 / January 25, 2006 9:01 AM PST

After replacing motherboard (MSI KT6-V) and installing new drivers on old HD/Win XP Pro SP2 everything was working fine. Decided to add DVD RW Sony 12x Dual layer. Added as master and set jumper on CD rom to slave. Both are seen by bios but will not read disk. Both devices work in other computer running Win XP Pro.

Orginal installation was 40 conductor cable, replaced with new 80 conductor that came with MB. IN device manager DVD showed yllow !. deleted both, and restored the same error, re-keyed from CS to Master/SL and again the DVD errored. Removed only the DVD and it came up ok.

Disk in CD rom will not try to mount auto or when selected from WE. DVD hunts but will not load, when selected in WE I get a disk symbol flash for an instantbut so soap.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
