Whenever I connect another Hard Drive to my pc (at work) the pc blue screens and restarts. It gives me a sys.drv error on the blue screen. The drives are configured correctly ( Master & Slave ). This is really irritating. I have an HP DX2000 Workstation.

Can you elabotate a little? Does the BIOS recognize the new drive? Does it give the BSOD when you try to access the drive? What OS are you using?

Intel P4 2.4B
MSI 645E Max-U Mobo
1GB DDR333
R9600XT 128MB
SB Live 5.1

Case Closed. I changed the HP IDE Cable. Works perfectly.
