New motherboard

  emmos 12:34 03 Apr 06

I have just built a new pc using all the old components from my previous pc which worked ok, onto a new asrock k8nf4g-sata2 motherboard, all the fans run but the h/d doesn't boot and the floppy and cd don't run, any ideas before I have to rebuild the original pc. Dave

h/d doesn't boot and the floppy and cd don't run

Ide ribbon cables in correct way round?
BIOS set to auto detect drives

Remember when you do get it to boot XP drivers for old board will not work on new board.Drivers to disable BEFORE changing motherboard
