Need Urgent Help
Posted on 2004-08-11
PC will not boot, HDD Light stays on, as well as CD-RW light. Monitor will not come on, yellow light only.
System was working fine:
Win XPro SP1
P-4 3.20 HT Processor / 800 FSB
nVidia 8x APG w/256 DDR Ram
1gb DDR 400 PC3200 Crucial Ram
1ea SATA WD 160gb 7200 rpm HDD
LAN - Intel Pro 1000/100 Card
No problems for 7 months, today I turned the system off, removed Power, and discarged any static. Used wrist ground strap, installed a Promise Fast-Track TX2 Plus SATA RAID card, added I bought 2 WD 74gb 10,000 rpm Raptors, plugged them into the RAID controller.
Doing a Clean Install, was going to boot to XP Disk and enter RAID command (F6 during setup), but never go that far. Removed Promise Card, removed both Raptor HDD's, put system back the way it was.
Powered up the PC, and nothing...no Monitor, no BIOS....Nothing.
Re-did system as was, and still have the Problem
Have tried orginal HDD, IEDE HDD, reset CMOS, and still nothing. Cannot even ener BIOS.
IF you can help, please do.
