I have unplugged and replugged in the three jack plugs: the one to the D drive, the E drive and hard drive. The light now shows on the top one (D drive) when I turn on the power, but not the second one, the E drive. I still get the NTLDR is missing message.
In System Set up, (F12 boot menu, option 5), I have reset the date and time, but the remaining options are as follows:
Drive A - 3.5", 1.44mb
SATA Primary Drive set to AUTO, but shows Unknown Device. Same for SATA Secondary Drive, Primary Master Drive shows Hard Drive (is also set to AUTO, capacity 40000MB), Primary Slave Drive, Secondary Master Drive and Secondary Slave drive all show Unknown Device, and all are set to AUTO.
IDE Drive UDMA is set to ON.
Hard disk drive sequence is 1. System BIOS boot devices, 2 USB device (not installed)
Boot sequence I have set to 1. CD ROM device (not installed) 2. Hard disk Drive C,XXXXX/p>

CPU info: Speed Normal, Bus Speed 533MHz, Processort ID F27, Clock Speed 2.40 GHz, Cache size 512 KB
Integrated Devices are all on (Sound, Network Interface controller, Mouse Port, USB Emulation and controller, Serial Port 1 is Auto, Parallel Port is set to Mode is P/S2. I/O Address 378h; Diskette Interface is Auto, Primary Video Controller is AGP; Power Management is set to Suspend S3, I have just reset AC Power Recovery to On and Enabled Low Pwer Mode; System Security, Kyboard Number loco is On and Keyboard Error Reporting is on.
Sounds like I still need to get the PC to recognise the D drive. What next?
