Is the hard drive showing up in the bios? You can get an adapter to attatch it to a desktop pc to test if its working ok and get any important data off too. They only cost a few pounds off ebay.

Hope that helps?

    oops sorry thought it was a bad :(

    check the cable and replace and try on a diff channel.

    Go to admin tool in control panel then computer management then disk management and see if it shows up there.

Upgrade hard drives on 670

There is a 2TB limit with MBR (Master Boot Record), but even a larger drive can be partitioned. So a single 4TB (biggest on the market) drive will look like several drives.
External drives that are bigger than 4TB are really several physical drives combined by an array.

RAID 1 requires optional SCSI drives, cables, and even software?

Add on SATA 3 cards to PCI are not a good idea if you are looking for speed. They just bottlenecks the throughput.

I cant get my Dell Precision 690 to recognise a hard drive

Double check the bois to ensure you have all the Sata ports turned on. I have found in some Dell computers the only ports turned on are the ones in use when shipped from the factory.

Have you tried a differnt video card?  Also disconnect everything including the hard drive to see if the system will POST.  If it does, them start connecting 1 item at a time.
