hi, so ive spent the best part of the day moving old motherboard and everything into a new atx case (sagitta 2). all the ram work, hard drive works - windows boots, havnt tested sound yet, bios and windows xp report i do infact have my dvd drive connected.

the writer opens ok, put a disc in i dont here it spin, windows explorer freezes if i double click the dvd icon.

Any suggestions?

just tried booting the xp cd through bios - but sticks on the black screen, as if its waiting for the dvd.

just noticed my reset button isnt working, could a wrong wired front panel connector cause this?

damit, the psu cable for the rear of the drive was tilted slighty, it works.

sorry for the trouble
