Well, CPU went in fine, video card was easy. Memory works, it detects it all at POST. but there are no beeps. And it detects my 202GB Hard drive, and Dvd-Drive. The only problem was that i dropped my PC and it landed on my big toe, and i have a swollen blue/bruised toe. It detects 1.86Ghz E6300. My problem is that it will not boot my windows XP install disc, or my live linux CD. I went into "Boot Settings" and it dosnt detect eitehr IDE channel, Master or Slave, any help?
