Have you ensured the jumpers are set correctly on the back of the drives?

  alan2k1 20:22 05 Oct 05

thanks yes they are set correctly

And the long part of the ide cable is plugged into the mobo whilst the short part with two connectors is plugged into the drives which also have power cables plugged?

yes the motherboard is a replacement 4 a perfectly working system

In that case your mobo might be duff. Are you getting the monitor to switch on and do you have access to the bios?

Check IDE controller enabled in BIOS

  alan2k1 20:33 05 Oct 05

thanks just checked that and yes it is so still no luck

  De Marcus™ 20:35 05 Oct 05

are the drives recognised by the bios at all?

Power plug to drive? easy to forget.
