tell you what casper129 why dont you re-write what you just said, except this time, put it in english. instead of writing how you speak e.g.:

"so i'm like hmmm i look to see if its geting powr and thats a YES"

you could put:

"The hard drive has power"

doing it that way you have the added advantage of writing less, not to mention the rest of us understand what you are saying.

yes but you do need to speak in a universal languge that everyone can understand or you just dont get any help.

One more thing; insults will not get you any help either.

Check the jumper pins on your HD.

Could it be that you have you're HD and CDROM set to master?

- HD+CD on same IDE-channel
- jumpered correct
- HD is ok
- CD is ok
- IDE is ok
- BIOS supports the HD size

-> check cable
-> invert jumper settings from HD/CD (perhaps u have an exotic CD drive like Waitec burners?)
