cd drive operates independently of
the HDD so this could be a new hardware
problem. The fact that you just added a
new HDD, perhaps you may have touched
something related to the ROM drive? When
you say "no power" does this mean the
drive door does not open?? or you don't
hear the cd spin up when you close the
drive door?? Make sure you have Boot
sequence setup right in the bios so that
the CDROM is priority boot order. And
to make sure your new HDD drive is compatible
make sure your bios see the new drive.
Try booting off of "A" with a bootdisk and
perform a chkdsk/scandisk
my notebook hard drive gave up on me so I am replacing it with Seagate 60GB Ultra ATA/100 5400RPM (I think it is compatible???). When I placed the new hard drive and start up, it give me "No operating system found". I have gone in BIOS as make it boot in CD ROM but I don't think it's reading the CD ROM. There is no power and I tried to eject the disk but no response from the CD ROM. Any help please?
