Hi there, my last power supply failed me so i bought myself a new one. It seems to be working fine, however I cant make either my cd dvd drive, my cdrw or floppy dives to work. Ive connected them up to the leads securely so am a little baffled as to why they are not working. Any ideas please??? (I have a Q-TEC 550 WP)
Hi Vsz. Are you sure that the drive cables are correctly fitted and in good condition, and the Master/Slave jumpers in the correct position. Is the BIOS setting for the cd drives at "AUTO", and for the floppy at "1.44M. 3.5 in."
check you have the ribbon cables the right way round onto the drives but you should have not had any need to touch these. on the CD the red wire should be next to the power cable, the power cable should only go in one way unless you forced it. the floppy cab be only one way if the floppy light is on all the time turn the ribbon cable over so red is opposite way round
Why did your old power supply stop working? Have you any idea? My chain of thinking is that something has made the old power supply go pop. Try disconnecting all the drives apart from the floppy and see if that works, then start connecting each drive in turn, process of elimination.
