Question about HP Pavilion a1220n (A1220NED904AA) PC Desktop
Not sure i have the correct connections from cd and dvd to the motherboard or to sound card, dom\n't know right place to connect
It would be helpful if you had some pictures of the back of your CD. There are basically three connections on the back of a CD or DVD. one is the sound cable, which is usually two or three pins, and there is only one way to plug it in. The next cable is data, and that also plugs in one way only. Final cable is power, and that one also goes in one way only.
The problem you may be having is if you have a mismatch between the drive and motherboard. The old standard is IDE/ATA, the new standard is SATA. If the cables are mismatched, you can buy adapters to convert from one standard to the other.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan
is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or
to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections needs its connections continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer
