Is this a newly built pc ? Try reseating all the connections first like your harddrive , ram, sound, video and any other expansion cards you may have.

Both lights on solid looks like you have one or both of the IDE connections in backwards. The stripe on the cable normally is toward the power connector on the optical drives. Also, on the MB, pin 1 should be identified, and the stripe goes to pin 1.
