I've got a very strange problem. It started when I lifted my harddisk rack out of my shuttle. I placed a 60mm fan with half screwed in screws on my harddisk to cool it. I connected the fan on 7 and on a 4 pin molex. Everything fit fine so i booted my pc. everything was just fine untill the screen after my windows XP bootscreen :normally you have to see welcome and see the desktop , but i only got black screen. I heard my cdrom was spinning up half way and slowing down, and it reapeated that all the time
i thought the fan was causing the problem so i removed it... and the problem still appeared
, after that i just unplugged the harddisk ide and molex and the cdrom and replugged it. After that my problem was gone.. my windows just normally booted and no problems anymore.
When i thought: ''this problem is over'' I replaced the fan on there and again those nasty problems, when I i did reconnect the ide's and molexes 2 times the box ran again.! I know for sure it's not the fan causing the problem, cause since I removed it the problem was still continued!
Does anyone know what is causing the problem?? I dont get it.. this is really strange. It can be the rack blocking something, the ide from the cdrom which is not good connected to get the computer booted...
I dont know anymore and I am scared to do some mods now because mostly every time when i remove the rack this problem comes back. (Not every time.. sometimes it works in one try)
Please help me! Im getting crazy
