and check that all the cables and connectors are fitted correctly. Pay particular attention to the IDE cables that connect to the hard drive and CD ROM. Make sure they are the right way round in their connectors, and that the floppy cable is correctly fitted at the drive end.
Take out the CMOS battery - the small round silver one that's held in place with a clip - and leave it out for a minute. Replace it, making sure you put it back the right way round, and close the case.
