2nd hard drive problem

Hi all,
I have installed a second hard drive to my new build but it's not showing up in "My Computer".
The first hard drive (my boot drive) is a Kingston SSD 128 MB which has Windows 7 OS on it, the second is a Samsung Spinit 1 TB.
I added the second drive about a month after building and starting the computer. I see it mentioned during the startup, so the computer knows it's there. But I also get an error message on bootup about "No Hard Drive detected".
What must I do, and how do I do it, to be able to use the drive.
Thanks,
Polllo

may be some settings in bios you have to tinker. btw correct your Question. your ssd should be 128gB, not 128MB.

Thanks Fetal,
I stand corrected. The SSD is 128 GB and also it is a Samsung Spinpoint, not spinit.
