I'm running a Compaq Presario on Windows XP.

So onto to the problem. Last night I decided to take a look inside my PC. I'm still relatively new to modding, so I wanted to have a look at things. I unplugged my CPU, CDrom drive, floppy drive, and harddrive, then I plugged them all back in thier respective places. I had been the same with a HP Pavilion at the time too. So I put the case door back on, and plugged in the power, mouse, keyboard, and monitor and what have you.

So now when I mash the power button, the CPU kicks in, as well as the CDrom drive, yet the LCD lights (power and loading)  are not lighting up, the monitor recieves no signal from the tower.

Hello and Welcome to

Im having trouble understanding how you unplugged the CPU. Did you remove it from the motherbaord? Did you take off the heatsink and fan also? You must have not connected something up tightly. Did you remove the front panel connectors from the board and not replace them?
