Well they assembled it and gave it to me but when I came home and connected it during the boot screen the memory is detected as 512 MB but the detecting IDE drives takes a long time and then it says all 4 devices as none. Sometimes one of them comes in funny characters. Like (RaRaRa) but in symbolic form.
So i entered Setup and checked the Basic CMOS. Under that All IDE Drives said [NONE]. So I tried auto detecting it from there and it didn't work either.
Also after veryfying DMI Pool Data (or something like that), it says Boot from CD / DVD so I put in my XP CD but it just kept asking to put in the Boot CD and press Enter. So I went to boot menu and changed the hard drive to boot from first but didn't work.
Therefore my Hard Drive, CD-ROM and DVD-ROM aren't being detected.
My hard drive and CD-ROM worked perfectly before. Now since it's Sunday the shop is closed and I'll only be able to go there till next Saturday so till then I have a busted computer.
So I decided to open up the case and see if there is anything I could find wrong. I did find this plug unplugged but I'm unsure therefore I'm turning to you guys for help.
Since I took these images from the phone I apologize for poor quality.
That's the plug i'm talking about being unplugged. It comes from the hard drive.
However another part of the wire is coming from the hard drive and is going to the power supply.
Power cables from the CD-ROM and DVD-ROM and their SATA and IDE Cables

Any help is appreciated.
