Question about Intel Computers & Internet
You should make sure the fault is with the drive by going into the BIOS settings. There should be a list of devices. Depending on the computer you have, you may need to move through a few menus to find this. If there is no PATA port/device listed at all, then there may be a problem with your motherboard. If there is a place for a PATA device in the list, but BIOS says there is no device present, then the problem is almost definitely your hard drive. Physically repairing hard drives is a very tricky process, and it is almost always more cost-effective just to buy a new drive. It certainly should not be attempted by someone with no previous experience in the subject. Hopefully your important data is backed up.
