    So i got this a bit older 1.70ghz computer and i want to set it up for backup computer to use internet, so I put 2 HDD's in one master+slave and also 2 cdroms, dvd burner and normal one. thing is before i added any of that I could turn the display on just normally and it would show green light and turn on after a few sec that computer booted (i used pci card) then after adding hdd, cdroms and ram's it just wont turn on, i tried my other graphic cards and still no luck...and onboard display socket shows me 'out of range' message if I plug display there, even after I remove the pci graphic card, so anyone please help? is it possible that adding any of the above hardware caused the display not turning on problem? and if i cant fix it, how can i get the 'out of range' text away and make onboard graphic work?

    btw, I tried other monitor and still same, so I know its not display issue. Also i tried moving the pci graphic card to other slots, still same.... any suggestions?

    Sounds like you power supply might not handle what you have added. Have you taken or disconnected all you added and see if it still boots? Also, it would help if we knew what we are dealing with here. Please list what type computer and what is in it....ram/power supply and wattage/ motherboard/ any and all model numbers/ make of computer, and anything else you can think of.
