CD-ROM quit

My CR-ROM drive worked great, now it says to check the cables, etc., on bootup.
Ant ideas to make it work again?

Open up your box and check that the ribbon/data cable to your CD-ROM is still properly secured as well as the power cable to the drive.

If these are fine then check in your BIOS that all your drive are set to AUTO besides the one for your actual hard drive which should have specific settings already. This way it should auto detect the CD-ROM and install the appropriate drivers.

Let me know what happens.
