If your new HDD is a SATA drive you might need to go into BIOS and make sure that the SATA port you have it plugged into is enabled.

Hard disk is spinning, I've put it in another sata plug but samething.
I also tried to go in bios to see if there is something to enable sata, but, don't see anything.

Do you have a different HD to put in this computer?
If so, put it on the same port with the same cables.
