I have recently got my computer back from repair for a dead motherboard. When i power it up with no hard drives installed, all is well. I get the POST and then a message saying insert boot drive etc. If I power it up with one of my SATA hard drives, it enters a reboot loop after the POST. There is no hard drive activity. If I power it up with the other SATA hard drive in, I get a beep as normal, but no signal to the monitor and frantic thrashing on the hard drive. Any ideas? Cause I'm stumped.
