BIOS doesnt load my hard drive correctly

Recently I purchased a 80gig Maxtor hard drive off the Internet. The drive worked great for a few months. Now, when I boot up my computer on the one screen (with the energy saver logo) it displays Primary Master:None and then it correctly displays my other hard drive. I have the 80 gig hard drive set to the IDE primary master. The strange thing is, when I go into my BIOS and look at my IDE drivesm the BIOS correctly autodetects my drive. I also have my drive set to autodetect. Yet, when the system boots, it refuses to display my drive. Can anyone help me?

I have checked the IDE cable and power cable, and they seem to in correctly. What do you mean by the "individual wires of the cables"?

i am no tech expert but he probably meant the actual wires that go into the plug....check them. also download the diagnostic tool from maxtor website and do a full check...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
