    A few weeks ago i started my desktop pc and had to play with the on switch to get it started. A few days later i openned it again but this time it never powered on . It was just dead . Thinking that it could be the on switch i openned the case and had to admit to myself that i couldn't see anything that would indicate what was wrong. I then realized that it could be the power supply. I decided to change the case and the power supply. After getting all i needed i tried this weekend to put everything in the new case. I'm now stuck with the following problems. At first i saw that i couldn't get any picture on my monitor. I switched the cable between the two outlest of the video card with no difference . I checked everything and in doing so i noticed another problem. My DVD player and my DVD burner are having the same problem. When the power supply is plugged in the tray opens. If i plug the data cable the trays don't opens and if i unplug them the trays are working again. I switched data cables and it's the same thing. I discovered that if i leave the data cables plugged in the two DVD player but i unplug the data cable from the motherboad the trays now works.I switched data cable and nothing is changed. I also tried it on IDE1 and 2 one the motherboard and again it's the same thing. For the hard drive it could have the same ploblem with the cable. Is the motherboard fried? Is there a way to be sure? Except for the new case and power supply everything is only two years old and i only use that machine a few days a month for records keeping ,the occasional game and for photos editing. I also never leave the machine on when i'm not using it.Compared to my laptop it's not used that much. The board in question is an MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum/SLI which is socket 939. It's not new but it's doing the job and also, i upgraded the processor recently to give it a little boost.so i would hope that there's nothing wrong with the board itself and i'm only doing something wrong. I sure hope somebody can clear this up for me.Thanks.
