Check the cables? Make sure everything is plugged in.

If you have your mobo posted, I imagine your computer is custom built? Or is it a factory build?

I had an eMachines way back when that every so often I'd loose all ability to detect certain drives. Oddly enough when I reformatted it would resolve, but some months later the same issue came back.

I imagine something was corrupt and I ended up gutting the PoS :P

its a custom factory build. i bought my PC off cyber power,

im having soo much trouble with their customer support and pc, that if Tec support doesnt call me back, this pc is going back to CA

i checked the cables, it was working fine when i installed my OS (XP)

the drive doesnt even show up in the istalled drivers, and i wont detect it in the scan.

i want my 600 bucks back.

im going to build a new PC

go into the bios and see if it even recognizes it. if not, take out the drive and set it as CS or cable select. only do that if its a single drive though. if you have two let me know.

i cant even see my Cd drive in the divices pane.

i contacted CyberpowerPC, they're sending out my replacement Cd drive and the ram they owe me, if this doesnt fix it ill return it and build my own PC.

thx, and celegorm, i didnt see the upper registry and lower, so i cant delete anything
