I was trying to put a second hard drive in my computer which already has a 250 gig sata drive instaled. The one I was trying to put in was a 80 gig IDE that i recovered from a bad computer. Well it did not work out because my computer did not read the second drive in the BIOS, so I just took it out and put everything back to normal. When my computer boots it does not go past the main Compaq logo screen, where it has the "press f1 for setup" and "f10 for recovery" but when i press them it does not do a thing. I made sure all the cables were nice and tight and in the right places.

Please respond if you can.
