hey guys

i recently installed a 2nd harddrive, now i have 2 HDD connected with SATA

they both worked fine then one day i was working on something on my second HDD and the program crashed, i restarted my computer and a msg came up saying "3rd master harddisk failure, press F1 to continue"

i go into device manager and the 2nd HDD is there and it says it is running properly

any help? cheers!!

ps. im running vista, if that makes a difference

i ran the diognostic utility from the seagate website, it recognised that there was a HDD there, but every test i ran on it failed

Let us know what make & model of motherboard you have and we'll look up the BIOS information to point you directly to the section you need to go to.

Also, would you happen to have a flash drive plugged into a USB slot?

And, have you checked the jumpers on the 2nd hard drive to make sure they are not set to allocate the drive into two physical sections?
