Here are the parts involved so far:
Rosewill 450W power supply, came with the case by the same company
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-M61P-S3 GF6100 AM2
RAM: 2 gig of Corsair
Processor: AMD Athlon 64X2
Video Card: Chaintech GeForce 8600GT
I hooked all that up, slapped it in the case, turned on the power and got a lovely message on my monitor telling me to give ti something to boot from. Hooray!
After that, I grabbed an CD/DVD RW drive from an old computer and slid that in, and a Western Digital 250GB SATA hard drive. I hooked all that up, turned on the power, and it gave a fizzle-noise. A fan starts to try to spin, but gives up. I tried uninstalling the HD and optical drive, but it still won't start. Can anyone give me some advice, or perhaps point me to something that will help clear some of this up? Thanks
