To be honest I haven't got a clue how to check all the voltages.
Is everyone understanding me or am I just being misunderstood. All I have done is taken away the Removable Hard drives (IDE diskettes) and and removed the IDE cable since then the computer wont boot up. I can here the Sata Drive (Diskette) check itself then the blue light comes on then nothing. It doesn't boot startup screen...
