    First make sure the power cable is seated all the way. How are the cables connected? Are you using a seperate IDE cable for the hard drive and another for the DVD-rw? If so make sure the IDE cable is in IDE 1 and the jumper is set to Master. Then get into the bios and find the screen that automatically finds the drives and let the bios find both the hard drive and the dvd-rw. Save and exit the bios and continue to boot the computer. If that doesn't work I would set the jumper to Slave, and plug it into the second plug with the hard drive on IDE 0 and go through the steps above...Let me know if this helped?

    Make sure you havnt got the cables the wrong way around. This may affect the cable select.
