Today i got my comp. to start. Now I have the problem with the CD ROM,Floppy,And Hard Drive. None of these turn on. Not only is that the problem, the monitor says no signal. I have all the power switches or whatever they are called plugged into the back of all of them, but they don't work. Like the CD ROM won't open and there is no light comming from the CD ROM or Floppy.What am I doing wrong? How do I fix this?

Well the floppy works now but the CD ROM and Hard Drive don't. Any other suggestions?

Do you have the IDE cables plugged into them? The optical drives need 40 or 80 pin IDE cables and the floppy needs a 40 pin (I think) FDD cable. These cables should have been included with your motherboard.

Are they recognized by the BIOS?

As far as the monitor, do you have your graphics card plugged into your power supply?
