Nothing happened when installed new computer - Please help
I am installing two computers. One is almost new parts except the DVD drive. When I turned on the power supply, it was on, then off, then on. But, nothing is on the monitor. I put the new motherboard, memory, and new power supply. However, when I turned on the power supply, I only saw the light flash on the keyboard for 1 second. Nothing happened after that. Is the problem on static? I am pretty sure all the wires are connected correct. What can I do?
Re: Nothing happened when installed new computer - Please...
Since the components are new,it must be other problem...I think that the problem is at the motherboard's jumpers...the power button, the restart button have wires that connect them with the motherboard so, u must not mess up the jumpers...i suggest u should download your motherboard manual and see exactly how the new components should be installed...

What do you mean by "nothing happens"? Do you have a DVD with the software on it? Did you put the DVD in the drive and nothing happened? Is your DVD drive set to AutoPlay when a disk is put in it? If not, you can open the drive (open My Computer, then select the DVD drive, and find the setup.exe file, and double-click it). If this is not the issue, perhaps you have an older version of the software. Usually you can still install older versions, and use the Update functionality to upgrade to a newer version online. If it's too old (like a Win 98 version or something), then you will just have to buy a new version.
Go to Control panel then select devices a then DVD/CDROM drive and see if your drive is listed and working properly.
If not then you will have obtain the drives to install the drive
If you have the model number of the drive, search with Google for the drivers on the Internet. and install the drive
Remove the old drive in Control panel.
A list of parts is not going to indicate whether you have connected or installed it correctly. Have you put or attempted to put software on the drive? Is the HDD partitioned and formatted? No drivers installed for video or sound... unless you have an operating system installed.
Too many variables to answer this question, without details of what was done or wasn't done Hardware will operate to some degree even without op system ( monitor and satac DVD drive)
put disc into dvd tray click on the start menu button (bottom left of screen) click on computer this should then show dvd drive icon, double click this and it should start any problems ask if helpful please rate me thanks Roy
Hi, it is usual to drives not recognized if it is new and connected to the system. Now, try this one to make it active. Go to Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, Administrative Tools, Computer Management. Under
Computer Management, expand Storage->Disk Management. On the results
panel, Right Click the Volume(X:) then click Mark Partition as Active
or click Reformat.
*I hope this fixes your problem. If you have problems, please drop me a comment and I'll gladly help you.
Have you tried to enter BIOS? Are you able to enter BIOS?? There may be an option you have to hit to enable SATA, and to select the boot device order, which may be messing things up. Also, remember that STATIC ELECTRICITY is your enemy! Ground yourself when working inside the case.
mst...First, get your manual out. the drive must be set to be a secondary device unless it is not. You say you have only one IDE...did you remove the CDR? If you have a second IDE or other board connector, then this drive is primary on that. Now, did you install the drivers for the unit? You can use your CDR to do that or get them from the website of the manufacturer. Are there any bent pins on either the motherboard or the back of your drive? Somewhere in there is an answer.
If you have only one drive connector set, you can get a board which will allow you to setup additional drives. Ask your dealer.
I am Romeet,i will try and help you with this problem.Seems it could be an issue with the Combo DVD Drive's Driver Software or Firmware.
From your Desktop:
Right Click " My Computer" Icon and select "Properties"
Go to "Hardware" Tab and select "Device Manager"
Under Device Manager, scroll down to the "DVD/CDROM Drives" menu and click on the plus ( + ) Sign next to it
Right Click the Drive name eg " Toshiba DVD-R TSST 2313" and select " Uninstall" Click yes to any prompts and restart your Laptop.
After rebooting, Windows XP should pick up the drivers again, so wait a while for it to complete and until it notifies you that " Windows successfully completed installing your new hardware" or something to that effect and then try using the software cds again
