BIOS not detecting a new hard drive

So i've just sent in a WD blue for a return because I assumed it was DOA because I couldn't get it to work. But now after receiving a new one with their guarantee it works it still is no longer detected. I've tried everything from flashing the BIOS back to the original version to clearing the CMOS, Trying different SATA cables and ports and trying different power cords. Im at a loss and have no idea what else to do. Thanks.

  3. Do you see the HD in Bios? Look at the SATA ports. In each case make sure the port you are trying to use is Enabled.

    Good Luck.:) Peace.
