Serial ATA HD wont show up

  1. Hello all.

    Last night i put together a computer which included a 160GB Maxtor Serial ATA hard drive.

    This morning, everything was working (including HD) so i installed XP Pro SP2.

    MY Power Supply is a Thermaltake 480W with adjustable fanspeed control or something like that.

    After i istalled some drivers and rebooted a few times i lowered the fan speed on my PS.

    Now after i did that my HD will not show up in the bios anymore.

    I tried switching and reconnecting cables and still nothing.

    Even loaded XP again from the CD and it tells me there is no HD.

    So even though it's in there, i have no HD.

    If this has happened to anyone before and you've fixed it, please let me know.

    Thanx in advance.

    -Pablo
