First I would try disconnecting the IDE devices such as your hard drives and CD-Rom drives. Then turn the computer on and check in the BIOS to see if the IDE settings are set to automatically detect the drives attached. Go ahead and let it try to boot up with no drives attached and see if it gets past the memory test. If it doesn't there may be something else wrong with the configuration and we will probably need more information about the system you are building.

But if it does boot and get past the memory test then make sure the jumper settings are correct on the drives. One is master, the other is Slave. Plug them back in and give it a go. So just try working backwards. Reconnect one drive or device at a time and see where the breaking point is.
