Ken85, welcome to the forums !!!
do you get any error messages ? Do the lights on the drive work at all ? do you hear any noises coming from the drive ? Have you noticed anything unusal before it stopped working ?

btw, you didnt drop any foreign objects in by mistake ? LOL j/k :tongue2:

this gives you an opportunity to see what the guts of your machine look like...maybe remove some of the dust from other components as well. You can use compressed air or if your wife/gf. lets you use their hairdryer, you can use it to blow the dust out. Just remember to use cold air :D ...and for the drive, cables pretty much just unplug and not that difficult to put back because most of the newer systems are "notched"..they can only go in one way....if all else fails, look for a marking on the back of the drive that looks like 1...that means pin one and thats the side where the red line on the IDE cable should go....power plugs go in only one way and it really really hard to reverse it...anyways, G/L :D
