    History ~ Machine does not find HD on boot sequence, BIOS does not
    detect HD. I swap cable and reboot with same pblm. I then pull drive
    out and mount in a different machine and am able to boot from
    drive. UMMM MOBO must be bad, I order an used OEM MOBO and attempt
    to swap out the MOBO. Problem now is with new MOBO that the machine
    will cut off after 1 minute and sometime 5 seconds. I have
    check all connections, I have reseated the CPU and Heatsink, checked
    Fan ~ same pblm. Any Ideas would be appreciated. I retested with
    Origanal MOBO ~ same pblm. I did send the MOBO back and it tested
    good. Any Ideas? Thx Tek

    Checked the memory sticks to see if they are okay?
    Any beep codes when you boot up?
