heya guys, can any1 tell me whats wrong with my pc? i recently upgraged the motherboard, graphics card, ram and psu all in one go and now, surprise surprise, it wont turn on properly. I'm pretty sure i have the jumper sttings on the hard drive set up correctly yet when i turn it on the pci and dimm LED's light up!!! Apparently this means that i "should turn off the power and remove the power cable before instalation of ddr modules or pci devices" which due to my aversion to electric shocks i've already done.

If any1 can make any sense of this then can you help me plz Huh? THX Smiley

Jus incase it matters my new hardware is an msi gforcefx 5900xt, a dfi lanparty pro875, 256mb ddr pc2100 and an fsp 350watt aurora psu

They may need reseating or the ram is not compatible.Is it the same make as the old one.Did you put in your old hard drive from the other system without reinstalling XP.

Did you get a new motherboard and cpu or are they still part of the original system. If they are original disregard the next para.

If you used the hard drive from the other system that already had the operating system on it ,then yes you will have to reinstall XP again so it can recognize the new chip.If the chip from the old system is the same as the new one then you do not have to reinstall
