Yep, those I have aren't the latching type however if were the SATA cables shouldn't the Delock SATA II PCI Express Card that I bought recognize the HDD? And I only ever used one in four slots, the other three should be like brand new and working fine as one.

I would still consider changing them for latching types to see if that resolves your issue.

Okay then, I will try it. In the meantime does anyone have more ideas?

Okay, I didn't remember this until today. A few weeks ago, during a couple of days the following message would appear everytime I rebooted the system. Could the two be related at all? Thank you once again.

the eror type

The error you show in the blue screen is basically a fancy way of saying that your windows files are corrupted. we get this type of error in the shop all the time. it can be caused by a number of things.
1. faulty or incomplete install of windows
2. damaged or improperly installed cables
3. damaged hard drive usually the heads or deep surface scratches.

as with the cables it sounds like a motherboard issue. i want you to put the hard drive in the second computer with the same SATA cable. if it doesn't work invest in some SATA 2 cables with clips. also the PCI card...is this because you motherboard only has IDE cable support or not enough SATA ports? also sea-gate sea tools is a great program for finding faults with hard drives sea-gate or not. it does require you to boot it to Cd (deep Burner would do the trick).
tell me about what you find...

Thank you for that suggestion but I cannot do that because I'm not actually checking the HDD on another computer but in an external hard drive case. About the PCI card I bought it as substitute for the motherboard SATA ports because I thought maybe they're damaged.

So to clear this up the hard drive doesn't respond. It originally wasn't plugged into the motherboard. The hard drive makes a whir....stop noise and you have tested the other hard drive on the SATA ports.
Is that correct?

Hey,

I know the thread is a few months old but I never solved this issue and today I thought give it a try again. Basically the computer doesn't respond at all, besides the working fans and giving signal that both drives are plugged. So I decided to unplug the memory RAM and graphic & sound cards. Without any of these after turn the computer on a spaced beep can be heard but if I plugin the memory RAM again the beep vanishes and again it doesn't respond at all.

Any suggestions? Thank you in advance.
