Question about Computers & Internet
Hello, I have an old Acer M1100 Desktop that I gave to my brother to use for some of his games. It didnt have a hard disk drive or an optical DVD drive so I took the old ones out of his computer and installed them in the Acer. Now it wont boot up at all. I cant see anything on the monitor, which is working correctly, the motherboard is getting power, all the right lights are working and the fans are functioning as well. I havent a clue what the problem is, only that, maybe Im not as good with computers as I was starting to think. If I was atleast able to get to bios, then I could reformat and reinstall windows, and fix. But, I mean Im getting nothing! LOL The old hdd required a IDE to SATA adapter for the motherboard(AMD 690V) Any advice or assistence would be more than appreciated! Thank You!
I m sure the problem is with the dongle or the hdd try to chnge the dongle or mey be a SATA hdd

Disconnect the hard drive and dvd from the motherboard
If you get video and cmos access power off and connect dvd
repeat and connect hard drive
getting video and cmos access has nothing to do with the hard drive...with no hard drive or optical drive you still would have access to cmos
go 1 step at a time to find bottle neck
