Can someone please help me, my desktop stops booting up at "detecting IDE drives", I have not replaced anything, I closed it last night and today it would not boot up.

Hello,

Try this 1

The BIOS is having a problem in detecting your Hard drive.

Open your CPU Cabinet --> Make sure that the Molex Power Connector and

the IDE Data Cable are firmly connected. If the problem still exists then

try changing the Molex Power Connector \ IDE Data Cable.

Good Luck
