i have a new system i am trying to assemble. i am a newbie but have had luck with other builds.
the motherboard will start and boot to bios with no hardrive. as soon a i hook up a hardrive to the sata port and power, it will not start.
i have tried several sata power and data cables and different sata ports in the modular psu. i checked the ssd on another computer and it works fine.
help!!

Did you use only the cables the psu came with? Any cable powering devices from different psus or spares cannot be used. Pinouts vary and mixing cables not meant for your psu can fry components. Looks like your psu is preventing damage.

Only use cables the psu comes with. Only cables exempt to this rule are data and extender cables.
