bought and installed new power supply for desktop it works now but it gets to point in set up and says boot to cd: then it stops, we don't have a cd and I don't understand what to do next. Any answers?

You have to enter your bios and change your boot order so it tries to boot from hdd before trying to boot from cd

You probably have not connected the power supply to your harddisk, Check connections.
If the hd is not powered then the BIOS will look for a cd to boot from because it does not see the hd.

Also check the data cable (either a grey coloured ribbon cable or a smaller SATA cable -usually red) that runs between the hard drive and the motherboard. Make sure the plugs on the data cable have not come loose on you.
