This question was answered on October 20, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

You may have all the plugs in, but they may not be in correctly There is a particular cable, the data cable needs to be inserted in a specific way The data cable is the flat cable with kind of a hole in it One side has a red stripe going down the side When you plug it the red stripe must be facing the inside of your motherboard This may fix your problem.

Good luck!
