Question about Biostar 945GZ-SE Micro Socket 775 Motherboard (945GZM775SE)
Building a new machine with this motherboard and a 3.2 dual core processor. Cooling fans come on when power is turned on but none of the IDE drives will power up unless I unplug the ide cables (new cables). All drives will then power up.
This is a good trouble shoot guide written by a friend of mine.
I build machines for a living everyday and I still use this "out of case" method from time to time.

anniegms, I had the same problem with a new Asus board running a Dual Core Duo Quad processor. The boards BIOS was not updated to handle the Dual Core Duo yet. I had to switch processors to a P4. Use a different PC to make a BIOS update disk. Update the BIOS and switch processors back. But I had all the same symptoms of yours. However I did/do have a PCI-E XFX Fatality (Nvida) based graphics card. I would check or swap processors, it sounds like the board is waking up but not the processor. Just my thoughts.... PCdok
