Question about MSI K7T266 Pro2 (MS 6380-060) Motherboard
Trying to install hard drive. but I can't get the video card to show me the bios. I turn on the computer but nothing happens.
Disconnect the drive and see if your video card works. If not, something else is broken. Could be the video card, the motherboard, processor or power supply. It is possible for a power supply to fail in such a way that it destroys everything connected to it. If that works, you have made some mistake hooking up the hard drive or it is badly damaged. Hard drives have jumpers that must be set correctly to indicate whether it is a master (1st drive on the ribbon cable) or slave (2nd drive on the ribbon cable). The ribbon cable must be correctly oriented with the red strip going to pin 1 (pin 1 should be marked in very, very small print on the drive's connector).
