IDE issues

Hi, I've just installed an IDE drive in my computer, & sometimes won't show up in BIOS on initial boot up (although I auto detected it). Also in "my computer" it shows black not blue & don't know how to activate it thru "computer manager". Any suggestions ?? Thanks.

  1. You may have to enter your BIOS settings at POST, move through the tabs to enable IDE, also called PATA. If your motherboard is less than 2 years old, your IDE settings may be listed under "JMicron." After you've enabled the IDE, save and exit the BIOS.
