So heres the deal, I recently removed my harddrive and dvdrom burner from my computer ( a Dell Opitlex 150) and used this stuff on another computer, anyways now I came back to my computer and tried to put the stuff back, and i did, connected everything the way it was, and it just doesnt turn on, I open up the computer and see that the yellow light inside is lit, which means that it does have power running to do it, but when I press the button to start the computer up, nothing happens. Could seomoen help please? Thanks

Probably pulled the front panel switch out. These normally live around the edge of the board and are often a block connector but not unknown for them to be separate wires too. Also pull the power out, leave it 30 seconds, plug it back in, might just want that quick reset.
