SOURCE: IBM THINKCENTRE A51 - WON'T BOOT
Simple dear, I think that you can see the power led and hdd led but it wont boot. Right. So switch the system and than open the cabinet and than remove the RAM , CLEAR THE DUST ON THE SLOT AND RAM. THAN REPLUG IT IN THE SAME WAY. PLEASE DO NOT INSERT IT FORCEFULLY BECAUSE IT WILL GO EASILY IF YOU ARE INSERTING IT IN RIGHT WAY. SO CHECK THE POSITON OF THE NOTCH ON BOTH THE RAM AND SLOT OK
AND THAN START THE SYSTEM. THIS MIGHT DEFINATELY SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.

it seems as they are conflicting this u usually caused by jumper settings you need to download the utility program from the hdd manufacture the utility allows you to change hdd priority you need to change the settings on the second hdd to slave and the first hdd to master but like i said unlike ide which has jumpers sata has digital jumpers the utility from products website is needed for this
