It appears your computer cannot detect any connected harddisk. Did you recently change any hardware, or had any symptoms of a dying harddrive? (Like your computer making a ticking or clicking sound while reading or writing data, blue screens/crashes, lost files?)

Your IDE 0 which should be where your operating system is located is not been recognize by your BIOS at boot. If you have a HDD connected and it still cannot be recognise then it is either because.

- your HDD is damage
- your cable is not properly connected to your HDD
- your jumper setting on your HDD is not set properly
- your ide cable is not working as it should
- hdd need a 80 pin cable while cd/dvd will work with a 40 pin cable so make sure the ide cable connectec to the hhd is an 80 pin one


I notice that your TSsTcorpCDW/DVD TS-L462C is connected to the same IDE chanel (master) as your HDD should be. I am not sure of your computer motherboard layout but usually it is recommended to have the CD/DVD connected to the Secondary IDE channel. Verify if you have another IDE connection on your motherboard and if you do connect your CD/DVD to it (you will need another ide cable) also make sure your CD/DVD jumper is set to MASTER.

After verify that your HDD is either set to MASTER or Cable Select (if cable select connect your HDD to the farthest (last) connection on your IDE cable).

If after verifying all those your BIOS still cannot detec your HDD then I would suggest to connect a known good working IDE HDD to it and see if your BIOS can detect that HDD.


Hope that helps, if any more questions just ask.

Tickling sounds from a HDD is never good news and if like you said you were getting blue screens and also probably computers freezing then it is probably your HDD.
