This is a continuation from yesterdays post,took conponenents out of working pc to build a new one- the new one wouldn't even boot up, removed bits and put them back together in the old pc, it now says that a hardrive is not connected , could the h/d fail as easy as that. Dave

First thing to do would be to see if the HDD IS connected, per say the connections are firmly in place.........

yes everything is fitted ok Its been in and out several times, I'm about to try a different h/d, could the fault be the ram? Dave

If you are getting the normal ONE bios beep at post probably not

No beeps! Dave

Could be PSU or Mobo problem (short) or something like that

just fitted an old h/d and it boots up - sort of! suggests that the h/d is knackered, any ideas how you retrieve info from a dead h/d. Dave

can't really reccomend one, but one of these may have the answer,good luck
All i can suggest is when your PC is up and running
BACKUP your data to removable media like discs...
