Default Mobo won't detect hard drive

Help, my mobo won't detect a new hard drive i'm trying to install (as master). The hard drive is a Maxtor Fireball 3, i'm not sure what the mobo is but it's for the Celeron 1.3Ghz (tualatin core) processor.

I know the hard drive is fine. I tried it on my other computer and it worked perfectly.

My motherboard detects the floppy drive and cd-rom, but not the hard drive.

The jumpers on the hard drive are correct. Set to master.

The cables are working I tried and tested them.

I don't know what to do. Any help is appreciated thanks.

there are a number of possibilities:
maybe your IDE controller is not working
maybe you are using an 80 pin drive and your motheroard only suppports 40 pin

does the computer work with other hard drives?
