Install sata drive with controller card

I have purchased a 500 gb SATA HD to use as a backup on my Dell Computer which is about 6 years old. The computer did not recognize the drive and I was told that I would need a controller card for this older computer to recognize the new drive. I got the card, installed it and still the computer does not recognize the drive. System BIOS does not show the new drive. What do I do next?
