Hey, i am currently building a computer at the moment.I installed windows xp on a maxtor 20g hard drive on the computer i am using now. When i went to put it in the pc thats getting built it was not even detected by bios.I put my other old 500mb in to see what happend, nothing either.
I though ok this is funny so i tryed the hard drives in the pc im using now. Nothing they didnt get detected by bios! What the hell is going on????the hard drives heat up though do not spin.
