Sata HDD Drive not showing in BIOS

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Well I woke up from a nap to see my computer with a black screen telling me to load media via DVD drive to boot.

All other Sata devices work (my 2 optical drives).
I tried clearing CMOS, nothing.
Tried switching Sata ports & cables, nothing.

I don't think I feel any vibrations from it or sound on start up (hard to tell it's a "Green" drive).
Do HDD drives have any point to check with a multimeter?

So I'm thinking the HDD took a dump while running.
Why else would the computer have restarted asking for me to insert media via DVD drive to boot.

*EDIT*
Just remembered I have an old Xbox 360 HDD, popped that drive in & it detected in bios no problem.
Looks like it's time to contact WD.

Thanks,
ACM
