Having suffered an increasingly noisey and prob failing psu, I have recently fitted a new higher rated psu (300w up to 500W). I took great care to ensure the right coloured leads went back into the same slots and altho the whole pc seems to work, everything is slow and the HDD light is always on.
Gratedul for any assistance

check ide cables are fully inserted at drive and motherboard sockets

Many thanks to FruitBat.
I followed yr advice and promptly checked all the ide cable connections more diligently than after initially fitting the new psu. The outcome is that I now have a pc which is running well again.
Thanks again to you and PC Advisor for running the helproom.
