HDD and DVD not running after installed SSD

HP Recommended
Pavillion 590-0066
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The HP is my work computer. I did not like the speed so I updated the RAM to 16GB and installed a 256GB NVME drive in the slot. I cloned my HDD and then pulled SATA cable from HDD and it boots great.

I took HDD and formatted it in a SATA box. After reinstalling it the HDD will now power on and the DVD also does not show power.


Any help? I have tried the power cord being installed properly (it is, I have another unit of same model to verify.)


I tried to restore but nothing changed.


Thank you, NEKO51

2 different devices that are now without power ?  The only source of power is the 8 pin power cable at the motherboard.
