ISO Hardware wiz!

I hate to admit my need on matters like these...but Iím just a stoopid girlie girl ;o)

Iím a pretty ďhands onĒ puter person; Iíve got a few of them all more or less rebuilt, altered and so on, and so on.

Among the stuff laying around collecting cat hair I have what used to be a ďSCALEO PA 2663Ē (AMD Phenom 9500 Quad-Core, AMD690VM-FM motherboard)

Well thatís about whatís left of the original FS, in many ways annoying package.

Today the plan was to put it in some kind of working order...said and done...I went to work. Very simple just to wake this ďFrankenstein from the deadĒ...or... that was my plan

A fresh Samsung SATA HD, nice enough ATI graphics, simple DVD rom and card reader, a few extra fans due to the fact itís housed in a awful case designed to send techs into psychosis...

This was some hours ago and since then Iíve been pulling my hair and now I have no temper left to lose : o(
Didnít even get power!!! Nothing! After cursing, working and hating every single jumper and connector I got a freaking Zombie staring at me with his black screen with no signal what so ever.

Nothing wrong with the HD graphics, tried 3 alternatives *deep sigh* (Yes, RAM and HD(s) are also double/triple checked)
Fans are now working and HD mumbles like a comatose train wreck. (Darn, Iím annoyed!)

DVD and card reader are clinically brain-dead. Reads NOTHING! That sux since I had to reset the BIOS to get this far into my puter [bleep].

Iím a diehard XP operator but today was going to be the day, I had plans on putting ď7Ē on this 64bit sys *joyless laugh*. I would dance with joy If I could get freakin ďVista HomeĒ visible by now...and I really detest all thing Vista ;o)

Iíve read 1000 bad ideas on the subject, Iím exhausted and my self-esteemís contemplating hara-kiri....

...I turn to You in my shame ohmy2.gif)
Any creative inputs? Donít judge me too hard...after all...Iím just a girl ;o)

Can you get into the BIOS/CMOS Setup?

If so, is the hard drive identified correctly?

Have you tried resetting the BIOS back to factory defaults?

If you are sincerely seeking free remote help, I'm afraid the only way it is going to work is if you can answer simple questions. (We cannot see your computer from here).
