Question about Motherboards
Hi When I try and boot up my PB Imedia 1402, the power LED flashes and the power button flashes yellow. Also, when I remove the RAM chipset, there is no difference, but when I disconect the HD, the RED flashing LED stops! However the power button continues to flash yellow. When I connected another HD, the symptoms were the same, in that the RED light stayed off but the power button flashed yellow. In all cases, there is no display to the monitor, the PSU makes a slight whirring noise as if its struggling(?). Not sure if this is relevant however! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time. JP
You did not install the new Hdd properly, the part of the ribbon cable with colour should be by the side of the power connector and the power connector should be connected with the red cble by the side of the colour on the ribbon cable.

ONE BAD LEAD?
try replacing 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 one bad lead will cause a computer to shut down
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps
