Good idea -- I've also seen that.


	VGA cable
	PS/2 keyboard cable
	PS/2 mouse cable
	LAN cable
	speaker cable
	optical drive is empty
	floppy drive is empty
	no other hard drives installed

	reset the CMOS settings to defaults

	boot -- black screen with blinking cursor.

Try again:

	Remove IDE HBA's

	boot -- black screen with blinking cursor.

Any other ideas?
