I have a Compaq Presario 7000 with a problem. I can't get the BIOS to recognize an IDE harddrive. I would have to say that both IDE controllers are good, as it will recognize an IDE CD-ROM drive. I have tried several known good harddrives with the same results. Do I maybe have a BIOS problem? Anybody tell me a good place to get a BIOS flash for it? I have tried HP's website, with no luck. I can't even find any reference to this system on the HP website.
BTW, this unit may have taken a lightening strike, that definately killed the power supply, but everything else seems to be OK, with the exception of the IDE problem.
