Is there an error message on the screen? If so, what is it.

If no error message, do you see anything on the screen?

Can you get into the BIOS/CMOS Setup? If so, is the hard drive being detected?

When the screen oes black I cannot see anything. If I hit F2 it takes me to system setup but the only thing I see about BIOS says it cannot be changed.

Can you see that a hard drive is detected?

For example, in the following screenshot there is a "ST980811AS" (Seagate 80GB) hard drive detected on "SATA Port 1 Master".

If no hard drives were detected, all four of the Ports|Channels would say "None", (which can be extremely bad news).
