WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you
are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.
Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.
While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards.
Remove the memory modules from their slots.
Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors.
Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth.
Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components.
Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol (Methylated Spirits) on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r
Allow the pins to dry.
They will air dry in a matter of minutes
If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory.
If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.
Check the memory module and memory slot contacts.
They are either copper tin or gold.
The colour will tell you which they are.
Mixing tin and gold can result in corrosion that prevents proper contact.
Look for any sign of physical damage to the memory module, memory slots or the motherboard.
Reseat the memory modules.
You should hear an audible click when they are in place.
Do not use too much force to reseat the memory module in to the slot this can cause damage to the module, slot or motherboard.
The hardware that you are trying to access is damaged or failing.
Could be a problem with the Hard Drive or the Hard drives PCB
There is a connection problem such as a bad cable
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a
secure dust free connections and are not faulty.
Although it would be very rare for the sata lead to be faulty.
Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty
Computers need power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

why do you need the IDE cable pin out if you are using SATA?
they are diiferent and not interchangeable. if you want to use IDE pin out for SATA, then you need to get a adapter from IDE to SATA.

Get a strong flashlight and a magnifying glass (if you have one). On the motherboard look for the front panel, it should be marked PWR and coloured green, also the plug that connects to it should be marked PWR_SW. On some boards there are no colours but the markings are the same, so take a good close look.
Have a look at these pictures for an idea >>>>>>
Please post back with the results and any more advice if needed.
Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

It's all on a small board and control panel, both of which connect via ribbon cables. Have you removed the power switch, etc from theseboards?
