You might be overloading some power connectors by having to many items on 1 connector.


Regards.

all the power leads are working on my dvd ram r drive and floppy drive,but if i swap them around to any other drives such as cd rom,cd rw,or hard drive they won't power up. i have tried these drives in my friends tower and they all work great but my question is why does my one drive work and not the others?, i have gone through everything umpteen times but to no avail my problem is still unanswered

please reply kind regards

If all your drives work on another PC then they are unlikely to be faulty. This points to the PSU or the power cables. However, you say that the PSU has been changed so that should rule out an actual fault. You do not say what the output of the PSU is or if the new one is the same 'size' as the old one.
One possibility is that the PSU is overloaded.
This may sound unlikely but a DVD combo can require 10 watts more than a player and this could make a difference on sa system that is close to the edge. You can check this out by going to click here

This will give some idea of what size PSU you should have fitted if all your drives are connected
