Ok, I just built my first computer last night, and everything went great! I hooked everything up nice and neat, made sure all the connections were tight, and then I read the Manuel before I turned it on to know what to expect. Sure enough, the manual says, "If one short beep occurs, then the installation was a success and no errors have been detected." Well, that is the beep that I got, thank God!! After the beep, the screen then shows the diagnostics of what is in the computer. at the bottom of the screen it says "Press F1 to Continue or F2 to go into setup." So I pressed F1, and then the screen comes up, and shows all of my hardware like my HD's and it saying, "Capability ... DISABLED." on both. Then on the bottom of the screen it says, "From CD: BOOT FAILURE, INSERT DISC TO BOOT" Well, I live with my parents and to say the least, they were not pleased, because they said this system, was going to turn into a money hole. I personally am proud of myself for doing EVERYTHING right, and am very disappointed that this is happening. After I told my parents the Error, they said I shouldn’t touch it until I’m done with school (I am still going to work on it when you guys give me some ideas). So, the other computer I have, the dreaded Compaq, I put jus the basics back in, the PSU that came with my new case, a stick of RAM, and once HD that has my OS on it. Then I had the idea that the “Disc” that the computer wanted was my Motherboard drivers CD, so, once again, I took my HD out of the Compaq and put it into my new case to try it, then it give me another error. “Disc read failure.” But I am almost positive that the Drivers disc is what I need to use, but my ROM wont read it! So, if you guys could help me, I’d be most appreciative. I have WINDOWS XP on my Hard Drive, so I shouldn’t need the XP disc because I talked to 3 guys at Geek Squad that said I didn’t, or do they not know crap? Please, tell me what to do! I am using my OLD HD's, but I know that they are compatible. The reason I didn't tinker around is I don't want my HD's being wiped off somehow. Ok guys, thanks a million!!
