New motherboard

  [DELETED] 12:34 03 Apr 2006

I have just built a new pc using all the old components from my previous pc which worked ok, onto a new asrock k8nf4g-sata2 motherboard, all the fans run but the h/d doesn't boot and the floppy and cd don't run, any ideas before I have to rebuild the original pc. Dave
