Excuse me if there is anything i have missed out
I put all my pc together correctly (i hope) and then turned it on for the first time. At first it displays the motherboard model and the pentium 4 logo. It then goes to a screen stating things such as CPU core speed and RAM information. Then it goes to a screen saying:
Please wait for IDE scan, it then says
Drive 0 : Sony DVD (model name blah blah)
Drive 1 : Not detected
When my XP home disk is inserted it says: a bootable CDROM was found in drive 0.
Then less than a second later it turns off completely. If you turn it back on it turns off even sooner and so on. Then you have to leave it for a few minutes for it to get up to the point of displaying that message again but then it will still turn off.
Any ideas on how to help. Thanks a lot everyone
