  1. I just put a new fan on my video and now my comp will not boot to desk top.

    The screen is black and says.... "reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key"

    It was working fine until I put on the new fan...


    mother board Asus P4P800 SE
    vid card EVGA geforce 6600GT
    P4 3.0E
    the fan ZALMAN VF700
    maxtor SATA 7200
    XP home edition

    Sounds like your IDE/HD cable or power has been jostled from the work. Double check the connections on your HD and try again.

    It's also possible you cleared the CMOS/BIOS memory by mistake. Go into BIOS/Setup and make sure your IDE/HD settings are correct and identify your HD's.

    Thank you Sharkfood for bring the obvious to my attention. It was the power supply to my hard drive. I didn't realize that it came unplugged.
