What chip do you have? It sounds to me like you did your install wrong.

I believe the Cromwell BIOS won't work with RGB display cables. Perhaps this is the culprit. Does the drive eject or anything?

xeero is right.

cromwell, which comes flashed on almost all chips now, wont boot with anything other than the standard av cables.

make sure your getting power, and if you are then its either a bad install or your cables.

So you are okay? Did you change to standard A/V cables?

well try putting in a CD burned with BIOS.BIN and give it a shot. It's going to be a little tough to confirm anything without video though. Maybe you should consider compromising on video quality for a few minutes until you get your chip flashed then you can go back to good cables. Cromwell doesn't work on good stuff and it's real tough flashing your chip without video unless you've done it before so you look to be at an impass. jester.gif
