Hi everyone,
I just put together my computer and when I boot it up, everything seems to be working properly until it says "no hard disk detected". I bought a 500gb WD SATA hard drive and it seems to be spinning and powered up but the system doesn't detect it. Anyone have any ideas on whats wrong with it?

EDIT: When I check the BIOS, I see the hard drive listed there.

I am sorry for bumping and hijacking this thread, but I am having the exact issue.

BIOS detects the SATA hard drive; however, after the POST message, I get a "Hard Disk Not Detected" error.

P5QL-EM is the motherboard.
