My friend you are in luck! I just had this problem with my friends computer. Did you set the hdd up as a master without a slave? If you did that than thats your problem. Oh yeah if you have such a great rig; why do you have a 40gig hdd?

gotta open up the computer and rewire it basically (mobo to hd, hd to mobo type thing)... then go into bios and make sure it's right.

Look for the jumper it is a little black or grey cube. Take that out. It will be located right between the power cable and the ide cable. Take it out and then boot up your rig.
