Make sure you have the DVD set up for master or cable select and have it hooked up to the last connector on the cable.

If that doesn't work, make sure your IDE cables are connected TIGHTLY and in the CORRECT PLACE (especially the hard drive IDE if you're not using SATA). I recently went through something just like it. Make sure all the power plugs are back where they are supposed to.

A few more details might help us help more.

EDIT: This is also probably the wrong section to put this thread in, try the Intel - General.

I told him to check for bent pins in the duplicate of this post... That's a no-no by the way. If someone can help you they'll find it without you having to make two of the exact same thing.
