Not appera in the pc
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules
Shut down the computer. Unplug all cables and peripheral devices. Clip the anti-static wrist bracelet to a metal object, and attach the bracelet to your wrist. Remove the computer's side panel. (Cases vary. Some will require a small Phillips screwdriver for removal and others feature screwless designs. Please see your case manual if you are unsure.) Locate the newly installed hard drive. Check that two cables are running from the hard drive to the motherboard and to the power supply. If you see only one cable or if either of the cables are not securely seated, plug in the appropriate connector(s). Leave the case's side panel off for now. Reconnect the power cable, monitor cable, and keyboard and mouse connections. Restart the computer. Enter your BIOS immediately. (Your BIOS usually alerts you to the key required to adjust settings). If your screen does not show this information or if you are unsure, consult your motherboard manual. If it is an IDE hard drive, enter the IDE settings. The BIOS should show the hard drive. Configure it as primary or secondary, according to your computer's configuration. (If you have only one drive, set this to primary Otherwise, set as secondary.) Save your settings, and exit the BIOS. I would also be check RAM Remove the memory modules from their slots. Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors. Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth. Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components. Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r Allow the pins to dry. They will air dry in a matter of minutes If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer. Check the memory module and memory slot contacts. They are either copper tin or gold. The colour will tell you which they are. Mixing tin and gold can result in corrosion that prevents proper contact. Look for any sign of physical damage to the memory module, memory slots or the motherboard. Reseat the memory modules. You should hear an audible click when they are in place. Do not use too much force to reseat the memory module in to the slot this can cause damage to the module, slot or motherboard. Once you are certain that the the PC is recognizing the hard drive, replace the side panel.
Hope this helps.
