I've got a dell xps computer, and I am having some problems with it. I think it's probably just something stupid, stemming from a lack of hardware knowledge.
Anyway, I have a dvd rom and dvd burner, but the dvd rom doesn't respond to anything. I can put any cd/dvd in, and nothing happens. There's nothing wrong according to device manager (no question marks), and I'm not sure how the master/slave configuration should be setup.
I am having a similar problem with my USB ports...my computer responds to nothing that I connect to my computer...I've tried a digital camera and USB mice in every one of my six usb ports and nothing works.
I'm not sure what settings I should be messing with to get this to work, I'm sure it's something stupid but I do not know what is wrong.
