Question about Intel Motherboard
Tried your solution, every time i plug the ide lead in the dvd or harddrive, i lose power to both, something is shorting out, cant think what
Get a new ide cable

Sound like th cable is reverse.
read the manual first, make sure the momories are in the correct orientation. DO NOT FORCE IT.
un-plug the hard drive and the DVD. try to run on the computer. if it turn, then plug in one item at a time.
Since Intel manual doesn't tell you which is pin1 on the IDE cable. you nee to make sure the cable with red bend on one side is plug into the IDE socket on the motherboard label pin1 and the other end is plug into the IDE hard drive facing the power plug.
SATA cable can go in only one way.
