Others have said it's my battery. You say the drive "went bad". When I checked the Blois I notice that the computer did not detect the hard drive (Factory Number) it just hard drive, and also it did not say Master or Slave. Then check your board for your IDE connector and IDE connector.Secondly, Make sure the Jumper is set right on the Hard drive.

Even if you have no LAN support, it's a good idea to include "LAN" in the boot sequence (always make it the last choice though). It could be connected to the secondary IDE channel.

I was hoping to use GetDataBack or something similar to see if I could recover data from this Seagate drive.
