Hi, I recently purchased a computer. I just replaced the stock heatsink with a thermaltake big typhoon
from newegg, and I installed new motherboard mounting screws as well. I had to remove the motherboard
in order to do this.
Now, when I press the power button, the fans go on, the new cpu fan turns on, the video card fan goes,
and the power led is on. However, all I get is a black screen.
I have experimented and found that the harddrive does not make noise unless I unplug the IDE cable
first. Similarily, the DVD RW tray does not open unless I first unplug the IDE cable to it.
I think it is a motherboard issue, but I could be wrong. ANY ideas would be very much appreciated!!!!
Thanks in advance.
