    Check where the ribbon connects on the motherboard as well, maybe you loosened it there as well. As for the banging noises... not sure about that one, is D: a CD-ROM? Maybe some coincidental mechanical failure, but lets hope not.

    Cool

    The noise you're talking about sounds like what might happen if you mistakenly plugged the HD cable into the floppy drive. From the backside they look a lot alike.
