  1. What happened:

    The dvd drive was locked up so I went inside my pc and pulled out the power cable(probably the worst thing i could've done).

    What's happening:

    When I boot up my pc the memory test turns out OK, but the IDE tests don't even initialize.

    What i tried:

    I tried different IDE ports, different power cables. I don't know what to do.

    Try reversing the IDE cord. From where you connected it to the mob switch it towhere it now connects to the DVD drive.
