Fans Spin, No display

I took the PC apart because the thing kept crashing due to the Hard drive.

The first time this happened I simply just changed SATA slots and it worked fine.

Now, I plugged in another Hard Drive and still not working...

While I was in the case I took the heatsink off put new paste on cleaned the computer out really good.

Plugged it all back in still no display... I don't get any beeps but the speaker is plugged in...

Yes I read the troubleshooting thread, but I skipped a bunch of the steps because I know some things just is not the
problem...

  1. Ok I did all the steps... somewhat fixed the problem...

    However computer still will not run....

    I turn it on, computer loads up the windows sign I see the bar run across the bottom of the windows logo. Goes black then blue screens...
  2. sata ahci? go to bios and set sata mode to IDE
  3. how do I know? I'm not sure if its AHCI or not. Any way to tell?
  4. Just to clarify things, I have a smaller in size Seagate Hard Drive and a Western Digital Raptor both installed...

    Its already set to IDE, I changed it to Raid and AHCI and neither worked.
