I am unable to start my pc and have noticed that both CD & DVD drives have blinking lights permanently. On looking at the amber diagnosic lights on the back of the box A is blinking green and amber and B is solid amber. The others are all solid green. I have tried switching on and off but to no avail.
Anyone out there able to tell me whats going on?
Take a look at this link:

This might help you determain what those lights mean....
The only hardware change made was a couple of weeks ago when I hardwired my PC to a Broadband device in another part of the house. Wireless would'nt work as we have metre thick stone walls. Its worked perfectly since... Anyway I'l try what you say which is where everyone else is pointing.
Thanks, much appreciated. Will report back...
Have opened the case. Reseated memory and video cards, but still no joy.
Can't think why both DVD and CD drive lights are continously blinking!!
There are no bleeps or lights from the keyboard when I switch on!
