Also I've tried and Changed the IDE Cables of the DVD\RW Drive but the system still is Hazy.
Has anyone any Idea?
Rule number 1, take that dvd drive and toss it into the garbage.
In order to help you out what kind of mobo, ram,cpu and vga card is he using ?
Have a look at the components serial number labels if you don't know what it is.
Either I or the others will look up the info over time and go from there to help you out.
