Connected optical drive to SATA port on mobo but the drive will not open or respond. Is there a step that I am missing? Does it matter which SATA ports on the mobo I connect the hard drive and optical drive?

you have to install an os on the drive. also connect your cd drive with an os installation disk. go to your bios, set the cd drive as first in the boot order, then your hard drive. also, make sure you have power connected to both the hard drive and the optical drive.

You may have missed plugging in the power for your optical drive. And no, it doesn't matter, you can plug both into any port.

Seen it happen so many times so it wouldn't surprise me.

A similar situation comes up at work a lot and it's very annoying. I work for a major magazine publisher, and when subscribers call to say "I haven't received a single issue I just signed up a few weeks ago" sometimes I look at their records and they signed up maybe 8 months ago. -___- I love answering them with a "are you an idiot?" tone.

"You're telling me that in the past 8 months since you signed up, you haven't received a single issue of your subscription, which comes out every week?"
"Yes. I want a refund."
"And why didn't you call us much sooner, like say... 2 weeks after you ordered?"
"I forgot."
"Lol."

sadly my job requires extensive travel, so this is actually the same system that sputtered out a few months ago...with that being said thanks immensely for the help.

I have to swing by my office later to pick up the OS but it really looks like I am on the cusp of finally getting this done. I will update on how things progress, but thank you again.

New computer is up and running, have had a lot of fun playing on it, but now that everything is functional, what utilities should I install? anti-virus? performance?

Thanks again to everyone
