Question Boot up problems

Ok all my parts is hooked up correctly and for some odd reason everytime i turn my comp on it only says my cpu specs and then nothing happens.It takes some time to boot, but i dont know why it stops once i turn my comp on. I reformatted my hdd and installed a frsh copy of windows but then it still makes this problem. Does anyone know how i can fix this??

sounds like it is a problem with the boot order or you dont have master slave set correctly...

For the boot order...if you have it checking you're 2.5" diskette, and a cd-rom before the HDD, it'll add a few seconds--you'd know it though, the lights should flicker on the 2.5" drive as well as the cd-rom.
