Question about Samsung SpinPoint T HD501LJ 500 GB SATA Hard Drive
I have recently bought gigabyte GA EP43-S3l motherboard, intel core 2 duo E8400 CPU and 2 x 2GB DDR2 SDRAM. I put it all together with my 600W PSU, NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT graphics, Philips DVD burner, Hitachi 80GB IDE HDD and Samsung Spinpoing 500GB 16MB cache SATA II HDD as primary drive with Windows XP on it. Everything was working ok for over a week (no problems at all) until I changed my PC case (the old one had faulty power button and looked very old so I changed it. I haven't changed anything in bios or Windows at all. I plugged all the cables as it was before and the bios can't detect my Samsung SATA drive. Only says "Detecting IDE devices..." and that's it. When I unplug it, bios finds my Hitachi IDE drive and prompts no system found, etc. (because there's no system on the Hitachi drive-fair enough). When I just plug the SATA drive on its own, bios still can't detect it. I have tried other sata and power cables for that drive but still no live. I can't even feel it spinning. Is it dead? I had it only for about 10 months, veber removed it before, installed it on my own, everything was smooth till now. The other drive, Hitachi IDE one I had for about 4 years, removed it always took it with me to mates and it always works fine. What happened to my SATA drive then?
Can someone please help?
Tried a differant SATA power inout into it? Is it making a clicking sound?
