Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So, I assmbled a respectable beast of a computer. I finally got everything wired up correctly, having eventually diagnosed the ear-splitting whistle-whine to be an unpowered graphics card, and then I got my baby to turn on. Wonderful!
However, it doesn't want to acknowledge the existence of my Western Digital SATA hard drive. Neither does it want the damn thing to turn on, if noise levels are any indication. A POST will acknowledge the CD/DVD drive and the case's lil' SATA connector as being connected, but no matter which of my 4 mobo SATA ports the HD talks to, POST does not acknowledge its existence except with a mournful "Xth Master Hard Disk Error," with Xth being a number that varies based on which SATA port my layabout HD is connected to.
It is a brand new hard drive.
Suggestions on the issue or advice would be welcome. I'm hoping that I overlooked something so I don't need to RMA the thing.
EDIT: Almost forgot. The bios knows that the thing is there, but claims that it has a a capacity of 0.
