CONFIGURATION ANNOYANCES

DRIVE GOES MISSING

The Annoyance:

I can't access my internal hard drive and it no longer appears in the list of hardware detected by the BIOS at boot time.

The Fix:

Power down and open the PC, and make sure the 4-pin power connector is securely attached to the drive. Also, secure the nearby ribbon or serial data cable at both ends (the drive end and the motherboard end).
