Bios will not Detect my Hard Drive.

May 30, 2011 at 18:09:13
Specs: Window 7, 6 RAM
I replaced my power supply unit . and when i started it up. After the logo, it says Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected. Press a key. idk what's going on.. i tried going into Bios. it only detects my DVD drive. i tried switching the Sata but still only DVD is detected. Is there anything could do? or is my Hard Drive fried... idk how... i just switched from 250 to 630 Watts. idk if that matters... i didn't do anything, just replaced the PSU...

Verify the power and data cable connections to the drive are firmly attached.

Ding dong the witch is dead. . . .

Can you hear the drive spin up? If so, chances are the data cable is not properly connected or bad. If you can't hear the drive spin up, replug the power cable.
Next try swapping cables with the CDROM drive.

You had to disconnect all the power connectors to remove the old PSU. Did you then connect both power and data cables to the hard drive?

well i connected the same as i did to my DVD drive. So wouldn't it work? i tried switching the Sata Cable, still only DVD works. i'm pretty sure i connected correctly. But was my first time. so.... was it because i didn't use the ground bracelet? that fried the HDD or is it just crap... all i did was unplugged and put the new PSU on and than plug it back. . . Can't find it in Bios...

Boot into the BIOS (setup) and check the date and time. If they are wrong then your CMOS battery is dead and you have lost some settings. Set the boot order to CD, hard drive, USB. Also check to verify that all SATA controllers are enabled.

When you insert a disk into your CD drive does the light on the front of the drive go on?
