Alright today I built an amd64 system as stated in an earlier post. I was having problems getting it to boot, but now I finally solved the problem and got it to boot. Now my problem is with the harddrive. When I first got it to boot, it showed the 3 drives: CD rom, A drive, and the IDE harddrive. I was messing with the boot disks and after messing around abit later, I realized that my harddrive was no longer being detected. Only my A drive and cdrom were actually shown. I tried switching ribbon cables, I tried switching the power cables around. I took off the A drive completely. Everytime I boot and it goes to the BIOS, it just says "NOT DETECTED" by the IDE primary device.
Also alittle strange is that if I don't go into the BIOS or if I go into a perticular setup prog, it tells me that I failed to overclock everytime such as "YOU FAILED TO OVERCLOCK THIS SYSTEM!"
something on the lines of that, I do not know the exact wording, but on the lines of that I failed to overclock when I never even tried to overclock or know how to. Is it suppost to say this?
In the middle of my connecting and reconnecting the A drive, I left the power supply plugged into the wall, but I had the computer shut down completely. Could I of blown my harddrive up so it just isn't being detected anymore?
