Dell Inspiron 9300 won't see hard drive

I added a new hard drive to my dell inspiron 9300. The bios does not detect the drive. I can't even load an OS on it. I've tried a WD 320 (ide) didn't work. Replace the drive the system came with and it still didn't see the hard drive. Any one experience this?

    Have you verified the new IDE's pins aren't set to Slave instead of Master?
    Have you verified everything is plugged in correctly & firmly?
    Do you have a second cable to try to rule out a defective cable?
