during the 1st week of jan, my moserbaer dvd drive got malfunctioned, I bought a new LG dvd drive.. GH24NS70..I installed it on my pc 2 weeks later, during which I updated my motherboard BIOS (awardBIOS) frm ver F8b (march 2008) to F10d (feb 2009). It used 2 read cd's and dvd's fine, I could even copy content 2 HDD frm Digit dvd's, but for Writing work on the dvd's always different errors used 2 cme. so I replaced the LG drive frm the service centre, but same problems used 2 occur, this happened 4 times. then I replaced my LG drive frm where I purchased, they gave me LG - GH24NS71. now the system doesnt even boots when I connect the dvd drive (SATA cable) but only when the WD HDD is connected. I even changed the SATA connection combinations on the motherboard of HDD and dvd, still no ans.. I replaced the SATA cables, put new in place of the old, still no ans..smetyms even HDD doesnt boots.. a msg comes at da 2nd startup screen "DISK BOOT FAILURE, PRESS SYSTEM DISK AND ENTER" and some tak-tak sound comes frm HDD. smetyms a blue screen appears..please advice me whats the problem, and where.. PC config..

Broken In
Clear the CMOS memory by keeping the mobo battery out of its socket for a few mins, then get into the BIOS and see if the new drive shows up. Then in the boot device preferences menu try these combinations in this order, each time saving changes in BIOS and then proceeding to boot:

1. First preference boot device - Optical drive
Second - HDD

2. Reverse 1.

3. HDD only.
