Computer does not boot
« on: May 15, 2003, 04:00:21 PM »

I recently put my old computer back together and I find that the BIOS does not detect the keyboard, mouse, or harddrives. It does not even detect the cd-rom drive. What should I do? I think maybe it's a problem with my wiring, but I'm not sure. Any help? :idiot:

Make sure they're all plugged in to the right places, jumper settings on CD drive are right.

Make sure everything is plugged in properly first.  Make sure you don't have your IDE cables in backwards.  Make sure you don't have any screws or other conductive objects laying on or underneath the board.  Clear your CMOS.  And if none of that fixes it try flashing the BIOS.

Try reseting the BIOS... something may be corrupt.
