Default New Build Problems

Ok,so i know that all the components work... i think.

The mobo im using is a 680i and Quadcore Q6600 and 2Gb of OCZ mem, as well as 2X 250GB WD HDD and 2 Optical drives...

So heres the lowdown.

I have these two optical drives and they wont even work(aka open or light up) unless i disconnect the stupid IDE cable from them, in which case i cant do anything with them at all. Once the cable is disconncted they work fine. What i want to know is... has anyone experienced this problem and how to rememdy it as well as Why wont it post? I have an 8800 GTX btw. And i dont get anything on the screen when i boot(haha since it doesnt post).


Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Signed 8 Series Noob.

So when you hit the power button does it start then go off right away? Or nothing at all?

As for the optical drives, well lets just get the PC posting first

First things I would do is only plug in the basic stuff. No drives, USB headers etc. If it still fails to post remove the RAM and video card. Still nothing try another PSU, still nothing. Could be the CPU or motherboard.

As far as it not starting up, check the simple things. I have found when I build a PC everytime it doesn't start up it is something simple that I miss or just think I have covered but haven't.

Is there a code on your motherboard? If so, tell us what it is.

You have probably already tried this, but have you tried resetting the bios and loading setup defaults.

I'd start from the beginning then. Unplug everything except the hardrive with the OS on it and see if that boots. If so then plug in one thing at a time and see what happens.

You may need to take it out of the case and see if it will boot up with no drives pluged in. About the only thing i can come up with is a short or a faulty mobo.
