A previously available IDE HDD in my desktop is now unavailable. It's installed as a slave on the Primary IDE channel. I've checked both Computer Management and the BIOS -- it's no where to be found. I've also confirm the drive is definately spinning.
BTW, when the pc boots the intial screen seems takes a little longer than it used to. It happens while the pc is trying to detect the IDE devices, but I'm guessing it's taking longer because it' having difficulty with the HDD.
Any pointers will be greatly appreciated.
