Question about ASUS P5LD2-VM Motherboard
My problem is that my father just ordered me a maxtor sata II/300 7200rpm 200 GB hard drive, whenever i connect the power cables my computer wont start. The fans will spin for about half a second showing the computer turns on, but then the computer instantly shuts off. The computer will only turn on when the drive in NOT connected. I have failed in any atempt to install this new hard drive. What should i do?
I have seen this only when the Power Supply is underpowered.
You may have a 200Watt or 300Watt PSU and the drive is pushing you just over the edge of what the supply can deliver.
Even if the power supply is big enough - it may not be delivering the 'Rated' power. That's the first thing I'd look at- because your symptoms are an exact match..
