Does anyone know.................
Of a reason that could cause a CD drive and HD drive not to receive power whatsoever... other than the PSU? [because I've already tried different PSU's]. The mainboard I have is new out of the box, and so is the HD and memory.
Also does anyone know where I can get those screws that you screw on your case and then lay your board on top of that and finally tighten the board it self on top. I think those screws prevent you from grounding out the board with the case? I'm putting together a comp for a friend and I threw out those screws that was on this old case I was using, and I have a feeling I'm grounding the board out since some of the components are not receiving power [CD, HD etc].
I'm only guessing that this might be the problem, but if anyone knows why my CD and HD's not receiving power any input would be great.
I have the following set up.
Abit socket A board
AMD 1.6 duron or something
Hitachi CD drive.
I have the following problem.
Turn the thing on and ...... CD drive doesn't open and HD doesn't make a sound. I only get a error message on the screen... I don't remember what the error message is.
