Well, I'm typing this from Knoppix on my old computer since I got my shiny new computer built, all the parts put together, everything hooked up... then I hit the power-on button? And nothing happens. Checked the power supply switch, power supply is on. And the motherboard standby/power light is on as well, which seems to indicate that the motherboard IS getting power. Any idea what might be preventing my computer from turning on? To clarify a little bit there IS an older drive in the computer, an IDE drive that is using a borrowed (and quite old, but still functional) IDE cable, since that's the harddrive that has all my data. There's also a newer, SATA drive in the computer, but I'm not sure if improperly hooked up drives can actually prevent a computer from even powering on.
So uhh... help?
EDIT: Oh, could the PC speaker do anything? As the PC speaker cord was... nowhere to be seen. So whereever it is, it isn't hooked up, but from googling around it doesn't seem like that should actually hurt anything.
EDIT 2: It's working, but now there's a new problem. Swiftly, to page 2!
