    Hiya mistatnn,

    We are going to need more info than that!!

    Operating System?
    What other drives do you have?
    Is it detected in the BIOS?
    Can Windows see it?
    DMA or PIO settings?

    Try and answer as much as you can, the more you can help us, th quicker we will be able to guide you to identifying the cause of the problem.

    Have Fun...

    Ahhh....

    This could be kinda difficult then.

    Read this CAREFULLY, print it out if possible.

    Read the steps through and UNDERSTAND what you are going to do BEFORE you do it.

    When you switch your PC on, it probably beeps, then the screen comes to life, the PC goes through the POST (Power On Self Test), accesses the drives, then loads the Operating System.

    What you are going to do is interrupt the normal boot sequence so you can access the BIOS (Basic Input Output System).

    This is normally done by pressing the "Delete" key on the keyboard AT THE CORRECT TIME!

    1 - Make sure the PC is OFF.
    2 - locate the "Delete" key, normally just above the cursor keys
    3 - switch the PC ON
    4 - as soon as you hear the beep, press the "Delete" key firmly for approx 1 second.

    It may take a few seconds, but IF you have done it right, the BIOS screen will show INSTEAD OF BOOTING

    IF the PC boots into Windows,
    EITHER you got it wrong
    OR it is not the "Delete" key,
    in that case, try the "F2" key instead.

    Assuming you can see the BIOS screen:
    DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING

    Write down everything you can see.
    Switch the PC OFF
    Wait 10 seconds
    Switch ON and let the PC boot normally

    Post here ALL the info you have copied down and we shall guide you from there.

    Have Fun...

    the problem could also be as simple as not having set the drive to the correct channel (master or slave).

    Take a look at the owners manual for the drives. There will be jumpers on the back of the drive, i.e. master or slave.
