Ok I just finished building a PC. Things are different from the last time I did this. I have only built one other computer before this. Anyway I just hooked everything up. I am a little confused at this SATA configuration. I was wondering how this works. I pulled the DVD drive and hard drive from a Dell I purchased. I do not have any type of manual, so I have nothing to tell me how I do this. It is different than simply hooking up an IDE cable and power connecter. Do I hook up the SATA cable and a power cable? I don't remember pulling a power cable out of my hard drive, but its possible. I do remember pulling a SATA cable off of the drive. On my DVD drive I only remeber pulling the power cable, but I did not have more than one SATA cable, which leads me to believe it wasn't hooked up that way. I should have noted this before I simply started pulling things off. Anyway I hooked the computer all up and nothing. The light on the motherboard comes on, so I know that the power is going to it. Does anyone have suggestions for these questions?
