I seem to having some troubles with bios detecting my hard disk. I have 2x HDD one master one slave. I start my computer and enter BIOS and I notice that primary master/slave are both empty. I go into primary and auto-detect and that works fine. I then go to primary slave and go to auto detect but it does not come up with anything. (If I unplug the primary and start up bios it then can detect the slave.) I save bios and exit with the primary master set. It goes to the HP screen and stays there. I then shutdown/start up the PC again and it does not detect the primary master. I go into BIOS and again the primary master is not there.
I have set BIOS to boot hard drive so I know that is not a problem either.
I have the master jumper set on master, slave on slave. I have also tried them both on CS. The primary master came with the computer (HP Pavilion) and I bought the slave seperate. They have both been running fine together for awhile and this is a sudden problem. I have also checked all the plugs and I know the IDE cords are correct (slave first and master on the end).
Why isnt bios auto-detecting the hard drive?
I have attached my system specs. Sorry for all the clutter, but I just happened to have this emailed to myself and obviously I cant start my computer to get better info.
Thanks for the help,
