Where do you get that BIOS revision 3.40? I only see v3.28 2006-05-10 on the HP site for various versions of that system.

Is this a US or Europe system?

Check all SATA Data & power cables for cracks.

Make sure the SATA Port(s) is enabled in the BIOS.

Try removing the SATA & power cables from all other SATA drives (HDDs & Optical ROMS) in the PC except for the Seagate HDD, then try to see if the BIOS sees the HDD. If it does try booting the PC.

Depending on the BIOS versions (I'm a tad confused with what you have) sometimes updating the BIOS can help.

Lastly, you try Seatools (Seagate's HDD test utility) to test the drive via bootable floppy disk or CD. Sometimes the Seatools will see a HDD that isn't detected by the BIOS for testing.

MOOOOooove! OH and you're welcome!
