  1. We need a lot more details about your PC before being able to offer advice

    It does not look like a software issue.

    Hard Disk & DVD on Serial SATA or Parallel PATA (=IDE = ATA)) cables ?
    (2 devices on one ATA cable needs correct jumper settings on hard disk)

    what is boot order in BIOS ?

    Do you have an operating system on Hard Disk ?

    is this a new build ?

    did it ever work ?
