All power connectors are plugged in. I removed the ide cables and am now getting activity fron the HD and CD drive, but still no video or boot up from the board.

You need to try with a minimum setup. That means.....PSU, Mobo, CPU, CPU Cooler, Vid card, 1 stick of ram in the orange slot closest to the edge of the board. If possible try outside of the case on the mobo box.

yeah you really need to go back to the bare essentials needed to boot in order to diagnose properly, some people have had the back of the mobo shorting on the case, so you need to eliminate all possibilties.

 

Have you tried a long CMOS clear?

What BIOS are you running? Make sure you download Tmod's Bios cd http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=22031 and try another BIOS! Also make sure the IDE cables are plugged correctly! Sometimes when they not the BIOS will freeze. At lest that happened to me! :nod:

 

 

I have no idea. Whatever came w/ the board

 

I stripped it down to the bare minimun, and still no boot.

Why will the HDD and CD drive work when the ide plugs arent plugged in, but wont work when they are?

I've had a similar problem. computer will work fine, but once i shut it down i have to clear the cmos for a LONG time in order to get past the "4 red led's" and get it to boot again. i'm afraid to shut it down right now...
