So hello. I am new to this forum and have a question for everyone. I have a custom built machine with a asus motherboard and windows vista 64 on it. I recently ran into a issue of that when I power my machine up it will detect my hard drives (i have a primary 300 gig and a secondary 100 gig). They are both IDE. Now the have power going to them as I tried a different power source. My question is were should I start to investigate this problem. Could it be the bios, the IDE cable, or the motherboard itself. Thanks and I promise to contribute to this forum instead of just coming with problems. Thankyou and hello all.
