Make sure there aren't any connections that have come loose.

So the 80GB works but the 160 doesn't?

Is it possible you could plug these into a desktop to see if the BIOS picks them up?

Are they SATA Hard drives?

If so, you can plug them into a standard SATA cable and the SATA power on the power supply.

Then turn the computer on and see if they are detected in the BIOS and the OS.

Which OS are you using?

You probably want to check to see what the SMART diagnostic says about your hard drive's health. You should probably download UBCD and burn the image to a CD and boot the CD.
