    I have installed a new computer on a computer running Win XP Pro SP 3. When I open Cmos it shows that it is installed. When I boot the computer and click on my computer it does not show up. Can anyone tell me how to see the new hd in my computer. Thanks, Ray Holt

    Check in disk management for the drive, it may only need to be formatted for use.

    It was a hard disk that I removed from another computer. I place it in an external case and it worked fine as a usb drive. I then formatted it while it was still in the external case and then installed it into the computer. It shows up in cmos and it also shows up in the device manager in the systems folder of the control panel. I opened the properties window for the hd and it says it is working alright. I then went to to the management console and it only shows the C drive and the CD rom which is slave to the C hd. The other hard disk does not appear. I click on scan and it still does not detect the drive. I hope I am not confusing you. Thanks, Ray Holt

    It shows up in device manager but not in disk management?
    What type of a connection does the drive make to the motherboard?
    What is the specific bios option/setting for the drive in question?

    In the XP start menu, look for administrative tools>> computer management>> then disk management.
    Right click on drive & locate a check disk for errors options & run it. Make sure that it is formatted again for NTFS.
