    Computer Wont boot


    Hey guys

    early today i got a blue ray drive to install into my computer. after i got done installing it i booted up my rig and now it wont boot up.
    all it will do is light up turn on the HDDs and disk drives and fans but it wont show any video to the monitor or post. i have tryed putting a different video card in and i have also tryed takeing the new drive out and nether helped. i am sure that i have enough power for the drive because i am running a 850 watt psu. so i was wondering if any of you have a idea on what i should do.

    thanks

    Firstly, double check all the connections to make sure that you haven't dislodged any by accident.

    Did you remember to earth yourself correctly before touching any components ?

    Does the motherboard have on-board video ? If so, have you tried using that to see if you can POST or get into the BIOS ?
