Question about ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe Motherboard
Connected a corrupted IDE hDD from a friends PC.
After that my PC wouldn't boot.
Remove the faulty HDD and PC booted up again.
Reconnected the HDD again after changing jumper settings. Still wouldn't boot.
Remove the HDD again and reset the CMOS, computer fails to boot up at all.
Check the RAM green light on the mother board is on. Disconnected everything from the MOB other then PSU, CPU, RAM and VIDEO card. Still will not boot.
Is it possible the CMOS is corrupted ? or I have blow my mother board up.
I am about reseat the video card and the RAM again and check all cables again.
Reset CMOS as stated in motherboard manual. When rebooting use only 1 stick of RAM in the B1 slot, as probably indicated in the motherboard manual :)

It is possible that the CPU has stopped working, it is easy to replace or test it on another computer, make sure you test or replace with the same model CPU with the same specs.
If it is the BIOS that is faulty, then it is difficult to identify and replace, especially if it is a surface mounted IC chip. On older computers the BIOS is easier to identify and sometimes it is labled with the makers name (eg, Award, AMI, Phonix etc.), and sometimes it may be inserted in a DIP IC socket which makes it easier to replace. If it is soldered on the motherboard it may be a bit difficult to remove without damaging the motherboard, although it can be done with care. I suggest you use a fine tipped temperture controlled soldering iron.

What are you trying to do with your friend's hard disk?
Are you trying to install it as a slave drive so you can see what is on his hard disk, if so you need to set the jumper on his drive to be a slave drive and your drive as a master or master with slave drive.
The easiest way to connect a second drive temporally to your computer without opening your computer is to use and external USB hard drive adapter/case (ie a USB external hard drive case) and all you need is to plug it into your USB port to view the contents of that hard drive.
