    but if you see a jump that reads JP1 - jP3 try to move the jumper to jp2-jp3 have the Hdd hooked up hit power button then put the jumpers back and see if it see's the hard drives
    you said you tried moving the jumpers correct? other than that make sure the power is connected (no brainer huh) but just make sure lol and maybe try the cdroms power.... does it read the cd-rom?
    is so use the cdroms ide and power...hope this helps at all if any

    I don't have the computer with me right now, but I did switch the jumpers all around, and even tried to start it without jumpers. There are two hard drives, but I've tried to start it when just one too. I've also switched the power, and that hasn't changed anything either.

    Thanks!

    Like I just said, it isn't the same computer. This is a different one. It's a Dell.

    Thanks again.

    Oh, alright. I don't think I need more than two hard drives. I think one is enough. I just think it's nice to have two. If I can ever get the computer to recognize it I might keep Windows XP on the one and put Ubuntu on the other.
