im building a new computer from the ground up and after i boot up all i get is a black screen, i can go into bios with no problem but no matter which CD i put in the drive nothing happens whether it is a windows or the HD utility disk that came with the new drive, ive checked all jumpers and cables and all are good. ive switched the boot priority to CD-rom being first and still nothing the bios does recognize both the HD and the cd-rom drive any ideas?

It could be a media issue ...meaning the CD could be bad ?
Can you try booting using the same CD on some other machine !!

yes both cd's work on other pc's so the only thing i can guess is maybe the CD-rom drive is bad? its brand new and the bios recognizes it so i dont think so.

the drive may not be bad but did you check to make sure you have enough power going though out the computer?

I'm not sure, I don't know to much about power supplies in all, but also make sure the processor isn't over heating, nothing above i think 96 F is runnable.
