I just built this new computer and after entering BIOS on initial boot up my WD 120G SATAII HD was not recognized in the BIOS.
I tried using a different SATA cable but it didn't work. Tried plugging the SATA cable to different ports on the MB still nothing. Tried using the molex adapter or the SATA power adapter still got nothing.
Basically, I tried changing all the cables that I could but nothing worked.
Could it be a bad HD? My motherboard is ASUS A8N-E.
Raid was disabled and SATA was enabled. I didn't plug the molex and sata power cords at the same time. I plugged them in separately. I tried the jumper too but nothing happened. I just put my ear on the HD and I didn't hear any noise coming from it, so I guess that it's dead?
