Default Dell 2400 wont read the hard drive

specs
The systemboard is dell part number 411726100004
It's a segate 30gb hard drive

This was dropped off to me because it was running slowly. The oem hard drive was a maxtor and it died. I put in the segate and it wont read it. The jumper is set to master. it is the only drive on the cable. I tried the secondary ide controller and it wont read the drive either. Is this a bad systemboard? I have also tried other drives to no avail..... Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thank you
Howard

If you knwo the cables work and the other drives you have tried work in other systems, i would say that the board is dead.
