After replacing a power supply, I'm getting the following message after turning on the computer and after the introduction that gives the basic info on computer, but before boot up:

DISK BOOT FAILURE  INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER

After inserting the start up disk in drive A  &/or  Drive D (CD ROM) and pressing enter nothing happens.

HELP!!!

check all your connection. You may not have your drive connections secure. Also check the ribbon connections to the motherboard, you could have pulled the pri IDE and not have seen it.

ensure that the hard drive cable is firmly connected and that the red stripe on the cable is facing the power connector.  Thats a quick check.

Also verify that there are no bent or missing pins on the IDE connector and hard drive.  You may also want to try a new cable.

Check bios setting to see if the machine is looking in the right place to boot - Should be IDE 0 or 1

check floppy drive ribbon.  Red strip should not be facing power connector.
