Is it possible that you accidently pulled a connector off of the CD/DVD drive while you were replacing the Hard drive? Other then that, there should be little reason for you CD/DVD not working if it was working to begin with and I assume it was. Don't worry about the Hard Drive LED, until you start installing your new operating system. It is entirely possible that the Hard drive LED will be hard to see until you start installing to it.

Hello, I have a HP 22w LCD monitor, running


Can you try the monitor on another computer? Also, make sure the cable is tight on the monitor side. And you also may need to replace the cable between the monitor and the computer.

I have a black screen. There is power I can hear and see the lights. I was replacing some memory when it began.


Is the hard drive firing up?

You may well have power and lights but a blown system board.

if its running then you should be able to hear the hard drive working as it loads windows.If all is quiet then suspect a board down - maybe static done it as you worked on the memory install - it happens!

I'm no MAC expert, but I would first try a new cable, then try a different computer...if neither works, it's the drive. If you're really desperate, and brave, open the case and try the hard drive inside either in a different enclosure, or connect it to an internal cable if you can. If you can hear the drive spinning up, it shouldn't be bad, so one of the above may save your data. If not, reply here, I know a major MAC guru who may have a better idea on what to do.

Hi,
this will depend on how the data is input-output, to and from the device. if it,s USB then usually it,ll be transfered in and out the same way. as long as the computer your transfering to, has the same ports. i should,nt see a problem.
You may have to install the relevant software and device drivers on both machines.
