Does the computer work?
Have you tried exchanging the cable connecting the CD drive?
Do you have them on a single IDE?

486 Computer
 
Hi William

The 486 Computer Works, I have tried it already, it must be the power Supply or some sort because I had to preinstall Windows 98 by removing the HDD and pluging it in to my other computer to copy files over.

The CDROM doesnt work as soon as I plug it in to the Secondary IDE socket and and when I plug the power in . The HDD doesnt seem to function, but as soon as I unplug the CD ROM Drive

The HDD is working again.

Please help ...


Regards

If HDD and CD are on the same cable make sure the jumper on each are set, one to master and the other to slave.

If this is not the case, a bad component can keep the system from booting properly. Try another CD drive, you can find them new for under $20, or find a used one. If you still have issues, you are probably right about the power supply. Easy to replace, if you can find another one.
