Windows 7: error code biohd-2 warning no drives detected

error code biohd-2 warning no drives detected

I have changed my graphic card (MSI N560GTX-TI) and new PSU (Corsair GS 700) and now my PC does NOT start, it gives me an error message: "error code biohd-2 warning no drives detected".
Checked the cables, SATA ports, hardware diagnose, reset CMOS, removed the motherboard battery and nothing...
My HD is a WD Caviar Green 2TB.
Help please.
Thank you very much.

Can you hear the drive spin up ? I can't see why what you have done would affect the drive. You say you have checked the connections. Try going into BIOS and get to the hard drive screen and see if it will detect anything, also ensure you are in AHCI mode and not IDE.

Honestly is hard to tell if it is working, because of the fan noise, I am tempted to say it does not, changed the BIOS settings to AHCI, was RAID before and now it says PXE-E61: Media test failure.
Is there anything else I can do ?
Thank you SO much for the time spent with this issue Cyclic.

Personally I don't think it's very polite to post a link to another forum when the OP has come here for help.
