Does the system TURN ON atleast if YES and if you do not see any action on all the peripherals that you hae mentioned above THEN CHANCES ARE YOU HAVE CONNECTED THE HDD DATA CABLE REVERSE . Remove the connection and switch on the system and see if it works . The correct way to connect the HDD is on the DATA cable which is 40wire/80wire look for one which is RED or BLUE this should be plugged nearer to the power connector (the orientation).

Asus p5qc-se motherboard,intel q6600


what i would start with is this. check all the connection first to the motherboard. cables to hard drives cd/dvd players power connectors. once u have dun this and still wont work, trace back the steps b4 it started to do this. remove 1 component at a time continuously restarting the computer. once the u isolate the component replace
usually and a no-boot bios condition 3 things need to be present first. keyboard, mouse and monitor.
also. another thing i would try is this.. if u installed multiples of memory remove then to a single stick and see if it boots.
nothing worse than 1 stick of bad memory to crash every thing

I have a SATA M Hard drive and I would lke to add two ATA HDrives


As long as there is an empty IDE port you can. You will probably have to go into the bios settings after you hook the other drives up & set the boot menu to boot from the SATA drive 1st.

PATA Harddisk connection


Hi Murtazasoni, if you have the manual for K8V-MX motherboard you shouldn't have any troubles. You can download it from this link, Win XP; http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=K8V-MX&SLanguage=en-us
The IDE data ribbon only connects to the PATA drive & motherboard in one direction. Please see the top of page 1-22 for instructions. Most data ribbons for IDE drives have three connectors. The connector farthest from the other two connectors (Two connectors very close to each other), is plugged directly to the motherboard as shown & explained on the top of page 1-22.
If you are only connecting 1 PATA drive to the data ribbon, connect it to the last connector on the ribbon, leaving the next connector for another PATA drive.
Setting the jumper on a PATA drive. Every hard disk drive has a large white sticker on it. This sticker includes information about the drive. Things like the model number of the drive. There is also information regarding how the drive is to be set. Example: if the drive is to be the only drive in the system its jumper should be set to (Master drive only). If there is another PATA drive in the system connected to the same ribbon cable than change the jumper on the drive to, (Master with a Slave). The second PATA drive's jumper must be set to, (Slave). Connect the power cable to the PATA drive ['s]. Re-check all connectors (internally) before closing the case. Boot the system & press the Delete key on the keyboard every two seconds until the main bios menu opens. Open your manual to the top of page 2-7. Here you'll learn how to move about while in the bios. At the main menu you should see your PATA drive. Listed to the right of Primary IDE Master you should see the model number of the PATA drive listed. If not than the drive was not connected correctly. Shut down the system. Unplug the power cord from the system, open the case & re-check the data ribbon for correct orientation, solid insertion & solid insertion of power cable to drive. Connect the power cord to the system & boot to the bios again. Once the drive is listed go to the title Boot, section 2.6, page 2-27 & follow the instruction through to page 2-28.
Open your CD-ROM drive & load your windows CD, close the CD drawl.
Save bios changes & exit. The system will auto restart.
The system should start loading windows if you set the boot device correctly as shown in the manual.
If you find this too difficult to follow, suggest you ask a friend with more PC knowledge for assistance.

Good luck!
Mike

The problem is your motherboard itself. There is a short somewhere in it and is wreaking havoc on your attempts to get a system running.

I recommend getting your board exchanged if you're under warranty.

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!
