I think that refers to the Chipset driver

Do you have a second drive installed?
If you dont have a 2nd drive, go into the bios and set drive 2 to off and you should no longer get the message.
Im thinking the bios probably reset to default when you replaced the power supply.

Does the light on the front of the CD/DVD drive flick on and off as it boots? If not, either you haven't plugged it in or the new PSU is faulty. What caused the need to replace the PSU? If it was a power surge of some sort (i.e. lightning) you may have taken out the motherboard.

check if you see the drive in the bios; if NOT, it is bad, or not plugged in correct (said above); check ide and power cable(s)

The CD/DVD drive light comes on, but not the CD/DVD.  I have turned it on in the BIOs and I get the following error "Drive 2 cannot be found".  I installed a new IDE ribbon.  The hard drive on the computer works perfectly.  My conclusion is the CD/DVD drive is inoperable.

try connecting the drive to the other ide port, and boot to cd (no disk connected) if that works, the drive is ok, but the controller is bad

Ensure that your IDE jumper settings are correct. Ideally both should be set to master/single with one device on each channel. Once this is established, set the bios drive detection to auto. If it fails, try both on the primary channel with the DVD set to slave, then both on the secondary channel set the same to test the controller as suggested above.

Tested and other components did not work. Therefore, concluded that the power spike that took out the power supply, damaged other components.  Not feasible to replace.  Scrapped the repairs.
