    Hi all,was given a new 40 gig HDD which was installed in a case that was kicked acroos the room(not me!!!). Tried to fire case up but no fan etc....no-one home at all. Transferred HDDto working machine which refuses to acknowledge it all though I fiddled in the Bios , however if I boot PC with XP disk managed to format and install XP on it but upon reboot will not boot to C: or still won't recognize it has a HDD
    Any ideas most welcome
    thanks :)

    Download the diagnostic software from the manufacturer's website of the hard drive and test the drive, an RMA maybe in order.
