I was poking around dusting inside the case when i realized the PSU was still switched on. Of course I noticed this when a spark from a 4 pin cable i was connecting to a CD drive fried that drive, and possibly the IDE on my motherboard. When I turn the PC on, the drive's light stayed lit and would not open. I went into the BIOS and none of the drives were detected, same in Windows 7. I have tried all kinds of jumper settings and different cables, and plugged in an IDE hard drive(I have SATA) and still nothing. I have also loaded the defaults for the BIOS. The board is an MSI K9N6PGM2-V. This is a strange problem because the IDE is the only thing that doesnt work. I also tried flashing both of the CD drives, the working one kind of made some noise like it tried to read the disc, but then stopped. The fried one did not respond. Thanks in advance.
Sorry my system info below seems to be outdated, some of those were parts I ended up not getting.
Mainboard: MSI K9N6PGM2-V
Un-Fried CD Drive: Liteon LTR-24102B
Fried CD Drive: JLMS XJ-HD 166S (i think so, off the top of my head)
