Default Re: something wrong with computer

I would start with making sure all the correct size risers and screws are in the correct place

whats the go with the hard drive is it a new one?..old one?..was it working before? if you are using a diff hardware configuration on another windows install you will probably need to do a repair with the windows disc before it would boot in any case. Are you able to put a windows cd in and boot to that?.

Hmm, well I was going to say the HDD, because you did mention it when you changed cases, but since you figured it out, well good.

A loose board may cause a short, but if it curves, it's even worse.
