Internal HD not recognised.

I have had two internal SATA HD's that I fitted in my PC working perfectly. I took them both out a while ago as my PC went back to the maker but ony testing was done. No work at all on the PC. i have just refitted both HD's and neither is recognised in the BIOS. I have searched all through the BIOS but cannot find where I need to edit something. Any ideas please?

Problm solved. I'm too to say what the cause was, suffice to say it helps if you connect both ends of the power supply!!!!

I had typed out a message about when I lost one of my hard drives after installing a USB 3.0 PCI card but didn't bother posting it as I just knew you had everything connected...

Mind you I do have a bit of an excuse - thinking about it, No I haven't, it was a most fundamental mistake, if I hadn't have been so quick in posting a new thread about it I could have got away with it!
I feel as if your avatar is looking straight at me!!!!!!!!
