Hi, i just moved a few days ago and before i put my PC back together i Cleaned out the dust and re-connected my second hard drive beacuse it never connected the first time. When i started up the PC it turns on just fine but the moniter isnt turning active and my keyboard/mouse wont turn on.
I tried un-connecting the power from everything and turning it off, leaving it for a few hours, and reconecting but same result.
What else can i do? I cant get into Bios, and i cant afford to replace the motherboard right now.

Dieconnect the hard drive.

Disconnect all USB devices from the PC This includes mouse, keyboard, monitor USB Hub if you have them.

Try to boot up, let it go as far as it will. Power down.

Reconnect mouse, keyboard. Try to boot again. If this works, your USB ports may have "locked up".

Re-Attach HD. If it fails now, the problem is your HD.

If this doesn't work, open the case and try to find any cable, memory, expansion card, etc that you might have disturbed in your cleaning.

So your PC doesn't work with the HD disconnected? Power and data cables disconnected?

Clear CMOS and see if you can get into BIOS after that. If so, reload defaults, save and go from there.

If you can't do that, next step is to try a new PSU.
