So, the computer worked fine before this? Or is the motherboard new as well? First off the bat, check the power running from the cpu heatsink to the motherboard, check the manual that came with your motherboard to make sure it's running, if it's plugged in the right spot, when you start up the computer check to see that the fan is spinning, if it isn't then you need a new heatsink. If your computer is stopping before it even gets to the bios, then don't worry about the connection to the hard drive, worry about getting to dos. Make sure that all the jumpers you have set for your motherboard are correct. Post back with an update

When you are installing Windows to a sata drive you must load the sata drivers when prompted (usually by pressing F6 and installing the drivers from the cd that came with the motherboard).

Did you do that?

when I boot It works fine for 5sec. but it gives message it says
To Be Resume F1
and I clicked F1 with window CD in after that it says click enter to install
and other key for reinstall,reparing. and F3 to quit.
so i clicked ENTER but it kept telling me check hard drive.....connections..
also It doesn't even get to BIO automatically i guess....

The fan works fine - but it gives you an error?

I'm suspecting a bad mobo - but since you also have hard drive issues being reported, first check the hard drive in another system to see if it works.

As Enthusiast said, you can also bypass the hard drive by using a DOS boot disk to check and see if it POSTs.

Then, go step by step through the mobo manual one more time (to get it fresh in your mind) - then call NewEgg (or where ever you bought the mobo) and ask them to RMA it.

when I boot computer it tell me "LOADING FREEDOS"
and it gives 3 lists
1) Nvdia Drive blah
2) Silicon Image drive blah
3) FREEDOS command promt
and it does not explain what to do on the Manual book
it only explains how to Setup BIOS....
someone tell me step by step..
Do i have to install window first?( but harddrive won't let me)
or Do i have to do something b4 installing.
and again The computer is NEW, I built it never installed window b4 on this computer..
