Disconnect the power lead from the hard drive and start the computer. See if the computer advances to the next page.

Sorry for confusion -computer starts only as far as showing processor then going to "WAIT" cd drives light up no sound of hard drive working
using Windows XP pro computer wont show any other information such as cd dives etc only "WAIT" and stops
