I'm starting along the road to Modsville, with some ideas of what I'd like to do, but I have come across a problem.
I bought a new case yesterday, so i could work on my old one and still have a working system (and practice taking parts out/in)
However when i transplanted all the innereds to the new case as they were originally (as far as I can tell),
it won't boot past the very first dark screen showing the motherboard details with the option of pressing DEL to go to SETUP.
However pressing DEL does not do anything (not sure if the keyboard is active, as no lights flashed on it) and the hard drive is sitting idle.
There are no new parts.
Master Hard drive is connected properly (as it was previously)
All power + connecting cables are pushed in firmly (i have quadruple checked this, many times)
The motherboard power light and case + CPU fans all start up.
All power cables seem to work ok (tested with spare fan w/ adaptor).
I hoped that as you guys/gals do a lot of moving around of components that there might be some advice here on what I should check, or do to get the thing going?
Any tips welcome.
I am very n00b so if you need to explain things simply for me, please do :-)
I hope i haven't screwed my motherboard in transit (any reassurance welcome)
