When you say it "won't find hard drive", do you mean it won't boot into Windows or it won't detect the hard drive in the BIOS?

From the information I have, I'd say you could try a different SATA/IDE slot (depending on which one you're using).

Did you try a different slot for the HDD? Also, try a different HDD on that slot. It could be that the slot itself is broken. I can't really think of other reasons why it wouldn't recognize your HDD.

Not to sound like a jerk, but you plugged the power into the HDD, right? Can you hear the drive spin up?
