Success! I plugged in the 4-pin power connector and was able to POST and then boot to the BIOS. Many thanks for the assistance in diagnosing the problem; it's clear I came to the right place!

Are you up for another newbie question? How does one capture the output from the POST so that it can be read? When the unit turns on, I can ask for the POST screen by pressing the TAB key when the BIOS splash screen appears. However, the POST output to the screen appears and is gone again in less than 1 second preventing me from learning anything from it. Is there anything in the POST output that I can't see in the BIOS menu itself? I am trying to figure out what the POST is detecting related to the IDE card I installed.
