    Have you done anything to the PC before this happened.
    when did this start -
    it could be a slave, master issue on the HD, it could a cable fault.
    you may want to try making sure the cable is correctly connected and not mis-seated. or bios or HD.

    check your eide cable has a blue connector to the m/b
    blue signifies 80 connector,if you only have a 40 you will have problems
