Problem with a Seagate Baracuda 7200.11

by Daniel812 / April 4, 2008 12:46 PM PDT

Hello all,

I have just recently built a new computer, I put it all together fired it up and the BIOS recognizes my HDD but when I exit the BIOS it says "no hard disk detected!" and I cant go anywhere from there?

Any ideas on what my problem might be?

Thank you in advance!
