HDD Has been stop be detected in my computer,PLZ HELP!!!Somebody!

Good Day to all experts, I Recently buyed a used Seagate 160Gb ATA HDD in good conditions.
It worked perfectly in a week, As I was using it as a slave to save my stuff.
Knowing that my first HDD was just 32 GB only not enough for my new operating system Vista Ultimate, I put it out and used the one with 160Gb as primary. Then I putted the Operating System Vista Ultimate.
During the installation I accidentaly shutted down my computer. After that The HDD was not noticed in my computer BIOS. I reseted the BIOS and also remove and putted back the battery of the BIOS, and nothing worked. Also have try in different IDE Cables and still did not worked. Then I go to the guy who from I buy it and he have A IDE USB Cable . He tried out and apparently it did appear in his computer my HDD. What should I do to fix this. "Almost forgot The HDD 160Gb even through the guy said it worked still, it make a weird 1-3 minutes sound after what Shutdown error accidentaly I did, it like is scratched from the inside or something".PLZ HELP!!!

Seagate 160GB SATA Hard Drive Installation.


Hi, Was the original 20Gb HD also a SATA or was it installed as an IDE? Try installing a fresh clean Windows rather than the restore disc. However, you will need the drivers for the SATA 160Gb and press F6 when Windows installers ask you to. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.
