What is "Pri master"?

If the power molex (4 wires) and the ide ribbon (80 wires) are both connected to the devices, and the ide ribbon is connected to the motherboard and power wires are connected to the power supply, then see if somehow your bios forgot what kind of harddrive it is
enter bios by pressing f1, f2 or del
you should see something about basic setup
look for primary master and use the cursor keys to select. Hit enter, and make sure it is set to automatic
hit f10 to save
Those are generic instructions--to be mroe specific, I would need to know what kind of motherboard you have

I'm having to run to a neighbor's house to get online, so, will try your next suggestion.
Thanks and if it works I'll let you know.
Meanwhile, what do you think about the aforementioned 4 wires and dangling ribbon?

the key is, do any drives NOT have a dangly thing and a fat ribbon?
