Hard Disk not recognised by BIOS

  BigBadBrent 21:57 05 Nov 2004

New PC (2 weeks old) Everything fine until I installed some software (not kosher). When running this software after installation, machine froze and I had to power down.
On restarting machine I now get "No Hard Disk Drive Detected". AVG antivirus software didn't detect anything on installation. Any ideas?

Assumation that if the pc is two weeks old then, you're have xp on it.

Have you tried restore disk or have you tried using the xp disk to restore.

sounds like a software problem, if you have the details of your hhd then it might be posiable to manualy reinsert these details into bois?

You may have a faulty Ribbon cable on the Hard Drive or it may have become detached
