Unhook the drive that you installed (both the power and IDE cable) and then reboot the system. Does it work normally again?

If so, then it's either the cable, the drive, or the drivers. If not, then something may have been fried while you were inside of the case.

The jumpers must be set to master if it is attached to the end of the IDE cable and to slave if it is attached to the middle connection.

If it is the only optical device use the connection at the end of the cable and set it to master.
