Hi Fitted a new SSD and now get a boot mgr error on start up despite SSD not being primary boot drive, that's still the HDD and then the CD / DVD drive. Inserted W7 install disk to undertake a repair but after loading the initial files, the PC just shuts down when starting windows. If I just go into the bios on start up to check settings, the PC also shuts down after a few seconds. So right now I can't perform a repair or check anything without the PC shutting down.

If PC is shutting down quickly this suggest the CPU fan is not running and the cpu is overheating. You may have disturb something while swapping drive around.

You were right, CPU fan connector had come loose. Now able to perform boot sector repair and PC now boots correctly. Thanks!
