Th ribon cables dont need to return to exactly th same port as it came out of ..if u look at th hard drive from th top with th pins facing u make sure th red strip on th edge of th ribbon is on th right,, closest to th middle then plug th other end in th coloured port on th motherboard (usually blue) plug th power cable in next to th ribbon on th hard drive.. thassit.!! absolutely make sure that b4 u touch anything inside th computer to ground ur static electricity on summing metal 1st..or wear a anti static wrist band.. if this is ignored th chances of blowing th components are immense..

Mouse pointer is fixed


Improper boot media means it's not seeing your hard drive. Check hard drive ribbons and power connectors. Your hard drive might have failed if the ribbons and power connectors are installed properly.

1999-2000 compaq processor board is not responding


Get a boot disk and try booting using disk. If it boots the mother board works. If you boot to a:\ prompt then type dir C:\. If your hard drive is working you should see a list of files. if not replace hard drive and load new OS.

I wanted to know whether ASUS A7S266-VM/U2 will support seagate 7200.10


M/Boards support all makes of hard drive
Are you sure you connected it correctly
The wide ribbon cable that goes in the rear of hard drive should
1) Be connected to M/board in the No 1 connector with the stripe on cable to the No 1 pin
2) the stripe on cable should go next to the 4 pin power plug on hard drive
Also ensure your BIOS is set to Auto detect of driives
