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?

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...

I have bought new computer window vista when I try to load Photosuite 3 nothing happens is it conpatable

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.

Computer has power, but nothing happens

How long is a piece of string?

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)

Thanks for using FIXYA

After installing hard drive, monitor, keyboard, mouse not working

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.

How do I install a DVD drive as well as my CD-RW?

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.

Toshiba Satellite A75-S206 DVD\CD-RW drive problem

Hello GeneMat,

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.

Try This:

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

Best of luck!
