Default Re: Upgrading an Old computer

How could you install your OS without a hard drive? Do you mean booting from the CD?

Try cearing your BIOS by removing the battery for a few seconds, then try it again.

AMD FX 8320 x8 Black Edition / Gelid Tranquillo / MSI 970A-G43

Err yeah, I booted up from the CD. Ill go try out the battery thing right now.

Aright, well I tried the battery thing, no success. Then I tried unplugging everything, and starting from scratch. Now I have everything installed how it should be, and still, no success, just the same start up and powering down of the fans.
