The fan on my power supply quit working so I went and bought a new power supply but the fan is still not working

And when I power up the computer I get an error that says Hardware Monitor found an error enter power setup menu
I enter the menu but then I have no idea what to do in there

Thanks so much that seemed to work but now I have another problem. When I go into the menu is says Primary and Slave none.
Does this mean it's showing I don't have a harddrive?

Make sure all cables connected to hard drive and such and secure so we can make sure none fell out while replacing the PSU.

I went through and checked all the plugs and now I have a primary drive but still no slave drive

The computer only has one hardrive installed but it has a partition that makes it look like 2 drives.
Will running the system recovery discs solve the slave drive problem? Or is it still a cable connection problem?

It looks like a cable connection problem.

Now I am concerned between the cable connectors to the motherboard, and the harddrives. Try taking them out and switching them.

A partitioned drive shouldn't show as a Master and Slave in the Bios. If you have two physical drives on the same IDE controller then there will be a Master and Slave detection. The partitioned single drive will be designated as HDD0 and HDD1 in the Bios boot options..
