Aren't device manager/My Computer/Explorer windows things? This is a linux forum. In order to have serial ata working, you'll need to upgrade your kernel to the unstable, development kernel 2.6.0-test9

have you checked for motherboard driver updates?

My m/b needed to update both bios & drivers to accept an ATA HD. Maybe it works for you as well
