I recently bought a new cd driver Newegg.com - HP Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM SATA 24X Multiformat DVD Writer
and a new computer case Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER HAF 932 RC-932-KKN1-GP Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
. I went to boot up and my BIOS POST message lasted for roughly 5-7 mins. I reformated and I'm still having the problem, which wasn't the case before installation of the new products. The messages I'm getting are below
. This is the first step in learning how to build computers/fix problems... obviously slow in progress.
I've tried different sata cables and I've unplugged the dvd driver, which did resolve the HP DVD Writer problem. I've ran out of ideas and have ran into dead ends on researching problems on the internet. What can I do, if anything, to fix this problem?
