Hi All, I have an amd k62 450, all was fine until last night when I tried to put in a cdrw drive, when I started machine up there was no bios sceen check, just a blank on the monitor(though the power light was on). nothing else excpt fan on mobo worked, cd drive worked, light on mouse and keyboard also worked....tried different monitor encase that was the fault and same story.
Hi, Have checked, originally the cd lead only had one connecter. I plugged in another with two, the cdrw was master and connected such. Have put back original lead, and normal drive with no joy. also have disconected all drive (HDD+CD) leads and thier power leads with no joy.
Do you get any beeps from the motherboard? I suppose its possible that you knocked the graphics card when you instaled the CD player, in which case you could have knackered it - see if you can borrow a replacement from someone.
Earlier this year had exactly the same prob after adding new hard drives. Now I'm not saying this is def, but 4 me it woz the PSU and 4 £17.50 I replaced it and abracadabra. U had better hope its the PSU coz if not no BIOS post points to the motherboard. Hope this helps mate
