PC will not boot, get power signal but will not start
Posted on 2004-04-05
i needed to remove my secondary HDD because it was faulty. Did that, but after re-booting the pc would not recognize the primary master (even though i never changed the cabling or the jumper settings). it would not recognize it in the bios either. So, i reseated everything but while doing that i accidently pulled out and stripped the IDE(?) cable for the USB 2.0 ports on the front of the case. Are these replacement cables widely available? I don't know if this is specifically causing the problem but now when i press the power button on the front of the case it doesn't even attempt to start, no fan, no beeps, nothing. it just sits there. i know its getting power because the power LED light on the MOBO is lit. And the wattage is correct. Any help?
