Along with habib_101s solution, make sure it is on the end connector of the IDE cable, The middle connector is always the slave drive. Also if the IDE cable has a red or blue connector on one end - that end plugs into the motherboard - don't try to reverse it , especially if you see a small hole in the cable near the colored connector.

You probably need the change the jumper on the hard drive itself. The jumper looks like a thin little cap that covers a set of pins on the back of the hard drive. You should see it next to when you power supply connects and most drives will usually have a diagram on how to change the jumper from a slave to a master.

Have you tried setting the jumpers on the new drive to CS (cable select) If you use that setting, the position of the drive on the cable determines whether it is master or slave. For example, the plug at theend of the IDE cable is the master and the plug in the middle of the cable would be slave. Just a suggestion. If you are using SATA, this does not apply.

Need a manual

Why? Just plug it in to the bus of the motherboard with a ribbon cable, then the Power cable, and set the jumper on the back as a master or slave, then load your Op system. Boot the pc, pressing the F1 or del key to enter the BIOS. See if the BIOS recognizes the drive, and that it is the proper GB size, and that it is correctly a master/slave. If the bios cannot find the drive, it is a bad drive and should be replaced.
Hard drives do not use manuals for installation and do not need specific software. They are a plug and play device.
If you really need tech info about the drive go to westerndigital.com

You need to configure first on your BIOS that it will detect 2 SATA Hard Disks so and set you Primary and Slave. If this doesn't work, basically your HD does not work anymore.

Maxtor Internal EIDE hard drive dip switch settings.

I assume you have two IDE controllers? IDE1 and IDE2, I'll try to help, the primary HD needs to have the pin set to primary and the secondary set to slave, if you're running both of these drives off of the same ribbon cable. You may have to go into your BIOS settings and check to make sure the Primary HD is the WD drive.

Need master slave configuration

Hello,

You should have a jumper configuration written somewhere on the front (up) side of the hard Disk ... Look there, or look just around the Pins... Look for M, S, CS (Master, Slave, Cable Select)

You can download the manual here:
http://www.fic.com.tw/support/download.aspx?dl=motherboard%2fmanual%2fsocket7%2fva-503%2b%2fva-503%2ba4sh.zip&title=va-503%2ba4sh.zip&info=manual
There seem to be more setting after going over the manual.
Any of these power supplies will work with the FIC board. All come with the 20-pin ATX main power. Some come with 24-pin power connector that you just do not use.
As far as finding a power switch for an ATX power supply try looking to a Good Will store. Most places have old PC parts for sale cheep. or try here: http://www.trianglecables.com/atxcaspusbut.html
