Hello, I have a self made problem that probably has no answer. I purchased couple of computer cases the other day at a yard sale ($15.00). Both are generic cases. Case # 1 had a power supply and a couple of drives, Case #2 had a MB, CPU (Cel. 400), and a couple of drives no HD. Well I took a chance and tried to combine the two, I had all the other hardware needed. After switching the motherboard to the other case, adding memory and an old HD with Linux on it. Believe this or not but it worked! But not exactly the way it should. (A) Although it shows the drives Floppy, CD, and HD. The HD is the only thing that works. If I put a CD in the player it doesn't recognise there is a CD inside and the same with the Floppy! This has to be on the Bios/MB level because no matter how I set up the boot sequence it will not boot from these devices. Also I THINK I have all the little lites and buttons on the front contol hooked up properly. If not could that affect the board in this manor? Also I almost forgot it is a Gateway board with Intel chips. Anyone for this challenge? Oh one more thing the case I removed the MB from had 6 screws with plastic washers that connected into metal stand offs. The case I put it in had four Plastic stand offs (At the four corners and two metal stand offs in the middle edges of the board where I used two of the screws with plastic washers.
