The master should be on the end of the cable, the slave on the middle connector.
Neither drive should be set to cable select with the jumper.
Have you updated the bios on this PC (could that have stopped it from functioning)?
Can you manually set up the drive in bios?

after some sleep, I decided to try hooking my slave hd up to the second ide controller with one of my cd drives, it now sees the 2nd hard drive. when I connect the 2nd cd drive to where the slave hd was on ide1, it does not recognize it being there in bios. I have tried 2 different ribbon cables and same result. For some reason it will not detect any drive as a slave on ide1. am hoping it is not the motherboard.
It could be the motherboard, the chipset drivers and even the master hard drive. but at least you have access to the drive so you won't lose your files. To narrow the possibilites down put BOTH hard drives on the other cable, you could just switch the connectors into the motherboard.
