Hi.
Either the drive is faulty (yes, they fail right from new more often than you would think), or the master slave jumper may not be set correctly on the back of the drive. If the PC came fully assembled, I would take it back and get the tech to check it. If you setup the hardware side of it yourself, check that the jumper is correct for the master/ slave situtation of the drive and make sure the cables are pressed in firmly.
