Simple Question

Ok, I should know this, but, I'm buliding a new system out of old parts i had laying around, nothing spectacular just something for the kids to play with. Anyway, I've got everything set up ribbons are pretty, and i've got power, but there seems to be something wrong, the only tab i'm connecting is the one for the power switch (as it's the only one I need) it'll power up, but i'm not getting a feed to the moniter. Also, I'm getting no power feed to the Rom drives, the hard disk will spin, but that's all. Anyone have any suggestions?

i know this may seem stupid, but have you connected the rom drives both to the motherboard and the the PSU. also what size is the PSU? also is the monitor connected at both ends to the monitor and the computer as well as the power lead to the monitor?

Yoy could always try clearing the bios using the motherboard jumper .....

could be 1 cable connected the wrong way round such as the ribbon cable to the floppy etc. or memory or graphic card not seated correctely.
