Sounds like the Presario has a hold on you, rather. :p 

There could be a short at the sATA connection. Have you tried a different drive?

Ah good ol' IDE. You could run a USB live OS, such as Linux, for the time being. If the problem is at the port or the circuitry then there's no easy fix for it, unfortunately.
