Re: Serial ATA drive not responding

What system is this installed in? If it isn't showing in the bios of the controller however, drivers won't help. You may have a dead drive from the sounds of it.

Its sinstalled in a Chanintech motherboard, and the system is running Windows xp ,769 RAM, such and such. I pluggted the cord into the SATA connector on the motherboard,tried both of them (theres two) And now Im stuck.It wont detect in System bios as an IDE drive.So yea this sucker costs 90 so im gonna be pissed if its dead.

Hello,

Is your SATA Drive is a seagate?
