Try this

- Select Start, Settings, and Control Panel; then double-click System

- Select the Device Manager tab

- Double-click the Hard Disk Controllers branch to expand it, select your IDE controller, and then select Properties

- Select the Settings tab

- In the Dual IDE Channel Settings box, select Both IDE Channels Enabled, and then click OK (2 times), and restart your computer

This might work because it happened to me before.
