Having problems with your IBM PC Desktops ?

My cpu won't turn on. I unhooked my cd burner installed a new 1 and my cpu won't cut on. Is there a reset switch or button to fix this problem. I did this yesterday and it came back on after I let it sit 4 hours. Now its doing it again, it wouldn't read my hard drive and it cut off.


Answers :

Recheck your power and interface connection. Reseat if ever. If harddrive and burner uses same interface cable set the burner to slave jumper settings.
