Question about Computers & Internet
Dell demension 4600 desktop... Here's the issue, the bios isn't registering any HDD that I put in or the second disc drive. The computer had a nasty virus that wouldn't allow you to access any main windows programs and after trying everything else I had to take the HDD out of the computer to have it formatted and windows reinstalled. But since I had that done the bios won't read it anymore. It is also not reading the secondary disc drive..
This happen only due to hard disk "data cable" or "power cable" problem... please check your desktop internal data cable or power cable that is connect to your second drive....

Testimonial: "I did that. The drawers open and close and the HDD has power but the bios just doesn't acknowledge they are there. I tried replacing the idea cable with another set from a computer that works and still get nothing. Also the bios doesn't have the option to return to default. I have turned all the options for drives on.. They say unknown device but when I save and exit the bios says nothing is in the ports that obviously have a drive in them. I even moved the drives around to see if it was just the one spot but it seems that it no longer wants to read any drive accept the dvdrom."
