I installed new hard drive and 4 new mem cards. Now the keyboard and lcd screen does not work. I have checked all connections and everything is secure. Any ideas?

The problem with making two changes at once is now you don't know which of them is causing the problem.

If the HDD you installed is PATA/IDE, make sure you set the jumpers correctly. And if the new drive is sharing a cable with another drive, you should double check the jumper on the existing drive as well. One must be master & the other must be slave...or both set to cable select.

As for the memory, try taking out 3 sticks & see if the system will boot with just one.
