I was trying to install an ssd drive and figured my cd drive was not plugged in as it wasnt recognized on my system. I (stupidly I admit) unplugged my cd drive while it was running and my computer crashed and now will not turn on.

Thanks for the solution, I unplugged my PCU and waited a bit and it now works. I guess I must have simply hit something to make the motherboard short cicuit and shut down, moving the pc around a bit and giving it time seems to have fixed the problem.

Now I just have to worry about getting this Kingston 128gb SSD to work and figure out this damned Click BIOS II interface to put a windows install on it. I am notorious for not having these new additions and computer builds work for me without hours of research and troubleshooting.

it when you unplug it on power that made this if you want to install the ssd you need it in the first sata port then the cd/dvd drive to load the os on it dont forget to put ahci in the bios for the ssd before the install of the os on it and the cd/dvd first boot until the system boot on it own from the ssd the ssd should be set as first boot in bios .

Yea, I was aware of this process, however I am using MSI Click BIOS II and I have not idea how to change my two 6 gb/s SATA ports to AHCI, there is no option for this in the BIOS menu. In researching how to this however I did come across some posts that said IDE will work but just be less efficient. I went for it and unplugged my main HD and just had my kingston ssd and my disk drive with my original windows 7 disk in it however I could not get the disk to bootup, I tried messing around with the boot order but to no avail. I plugged my HD back in and booted up windows to find that my disk drive wasn't showing up in My Computer, so, idiotically, I tried unplugging the SATA cable as the it was still getting power and that is when the crash happened.

God I hope not, I think that I will wait until I have a friend here with me before I try and make any more changes, that crash really made me rage, I can't have that happen again.

Thanks for the solutions and advice, the funny thing is that the disk drive is now detected, the SSD will not show up in My Computer as well, but it does in disk management.

I need a break from this troubleshooting and what I am still working on for BF4, I will look at it tomorrow.
