Answers :

Hi,

Let's check the easy things first.
\015\012Does the drive have power?
Does it spin up?
Is it set as Master, Slave or Cable Select?
How is it connected to the motherboard?
If by ribbon cable, 40 or 80 conductor?
If by ribbon cable, which connector is the drive plugged into? Middle or End.
\015\012Start there. Then get back and we'll move forward.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
