- No power to hard drive with new motherboard

Motherboard / Audio / PCI Express / S/PDIF / SLI Ready / Gigabit LAN /
USB 2.0 / Serial ATA / RAID motherboard. I got everything connected
but only the CPU and case fan come on when the power is turned on. I
put the original motherboad back in and got everthing to work just
Is it possible that my hard drives are not compatible. I have 450
watts of power so I do not think that is the problem.
I tried both IDE1 and IDE2 with the hard drives and could not get the
computer to turn on properly. I also noticed my monitor would be on
but was not getting a signal.
Has anyone else had an issue like this?
Re: No power to hard drive with new motherboard
Computer worked with old motherboard
Computer wouldn't work with new motherboard (everything else the
same). Didn't even get a video signal.
Computer worked again when original motherboard put back.
You think there just MIGHT be something wrong with the new motherboard?
While the computer obviously won't load the OS without a hard drive, if
it doesn't send a signal to the monitor with JUST the case, PSU,
motherboard, CPU and video accelerator (or integrated motherboard
graphics) installed there's some problem other than the hard drive(s).
