Check your cable connection. It sounds like the power connection is fine. Do you have any experience at all going into CMOS? Do you have a manual that came with the motherboard or system? If not, and you know the manufacturer of your motherboard, you should be able to go to their web site and view the BIOS utility documentation. That will tell you how to set boot disk priority. You will also be able to tell if the motherboard is detecting your hard drive. The number of beeps at boot-up during power on self-test (POST) relates to a status or error code depending on the motherboard. That can help you further diagnose the problem.
