Okay so, i just switched over my Computer Case from an old one to a new one. and i reconnected everything, i connected everything by the book and by my memory. and i noticed a couple of things. at first it would pick up my 80gb HDD and my 250gb HDD. Now it doesnt pick up my 80gb HDD and it only picks up the 250gb HDD. it also follows through with an error at startup which says that the secondary ide has no 80 conductor cable installed or something like that. So i'd like to know if my HDD failed..or..is something else going on? i've changed it around about 20 times and still nothing. i didnt touch the breakers in the back though. Here is my CPU specs. AMD Athlon XP 1.24ghz Ram is at 1.50GB Two HDD (mentioned above) And..if you need more info i'll be checking this religiously. THank you for your help!!!
