    So its a bit of a story, here goes:
    I bought a desktop and it wasnt reformatted.
    Step 1: Enter Win7 CD. - Would not let me select SSD - Had error message(forgot now) - Googled it and it instructed me to access CMD in windows start up, diskpart, select disk, clean, restart, install.
    Step 2: Did instructions, installed it perfectly! Computer running Win7 and working fine
    Step 3: Noticed in My Computer, my SSD drive, and my HDD which states 125GB when it should be 500.
    I figured (stupid of me) that I can go into CMD, diskpart, clean that HDD drive to restart it to 500.
    Step 4: Restarted it, there is NO display, no CMD, no blinking underscores, nothing. Absolutely Nothing

    Things I have done to try to remedy:
    - Restart BIOS by removing battery
    - Restart with Win7 CD in cddrive
    - Restart with Win7 USB in
    - Restart with Win7 CD in External CD Drive via USB
    - Constantly Pressing F10 / F12 / Del on start up hoping a screen would come up
    - Unplugging different combinations of SSD/HDD hoping it would run off one of them
    - Unplugging a HDD from another rig, plugging it into the current with no other SSD/HDD


    Did I brick the RIG?

    You should get a display when you switch on regardless of how the drives are set up.

    Check you re-connected everything properly, especially any power connector for the Graphics card.
