Try these things:

1) As for the IDE primary master check inside the computer to see any of the cables are loose and needs to be plugged in, in case your father by mistake unplugged a cable

If the cables are fine then there's a chance that drive is bad and needs to be replaced.

2) For the memory check the setup at POST to see if the additional memory was updated.

The computer usually doesn't have too much problems with memory it usualy picks it up, but

with this you should be fine.
