    I need some help please, i have searched google the last three days
    with no answer.
    here is the story ..
    i had a Intel Mobo .. Pearl Creek and with a Seagate 500gig sata
    drive, (ST3500320AS) all worked well until i upgraded to a Gigabyte
    GA-G31M-S2L. now it does not wanna see the hard drive, not even in the
    bios. I can feel the hard drive spinning, the onboard sata controller
    is enabled, well i tryed all settings i can see to do with the hard
    drive but nothing. please if someone can help me. The hard drive is
    two mothes old.
