Repeat everything above...and just make sure that you are only plugging in SATA Power to SATA drives (not both the SATA power and 4 pin Power - you won't like the result).

On first boot - If it posts - I like to setup BIOS, then restart with memtest and run that before anything else. If that passes - continue with your windows install and enjoy your new PC.

Ahh help me.
The first boot it was fine, and I loaded the WinXP cd, but then found out it didn't recognise my mouse and keyboard. So I unplugged them both and replugged them and reseted the computer.
Still the KB and mouse are not recognised by the computer, and now it doesn't even have a system error asking for a cd.


Help?

It should recognise them, USB or not, they should both have basic functionality.

Will it not even let you scroll through the BIOS when your HD's aren't plugged in?

The mouse or kb don't light up or work.
Tried both connectors, usb and the circle one with a adapter.

Hmm... Curious situation.

Have you booted up without a hard drive connected? With only the basic components? There might be something in the BIOS relating to k/b settings. Although, if you cannot navigate to those setting because your keybaord doen't respond.. I don't know.

What motherboard are you building on?

Haven't tried booting without a hard drive.

I've got the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L.
