SATA drives not detected
I've already posted this question in a different area, which I think was wrong as it hardware related..so apologies if anybody had to read this twice.
I'm a newb to these forums and I've been dealing with this problem for days on end now.
I've literally been building my new PC, so it's a complete newbuild but my Hard disk and DVD drives won't get detected in the BIOS. When I turn on the PC, the 'POST boot shows it has picked up a 160GB Sata II Hard disk only. However, when I go into the BIOS there's nothing detected. I've checked the SATA configuration and they are 'IDE'. The DVD drive has power, but is also not detected in the BIOS which means I can't install anything.
These are the specs:
Motherboard: Asus P5Q PRO
HDD: Seagate ST3160815AS - BARRACUDA 7200.10 160GB SATA-II
DVD: Sony AD-7203S-0B
Any input would be great peeps.
