I got me a new used computer from a neighbor in trade, I formatted and put win xp home on it. After getting all my basic setup done, I went in to bios and set all my security like I always do with any of my CPU's. After doing the normal Start up and Bios security, then into Win XP and set user, I went back in to set hard drive lock. Nothing un-common for me. after I rebooted that time, Neither my hard drive nor my CD Rom drive is being detected in the bios and it doesn't even ask for hard drive password. I have reset cmos and everything to no avail. Pleas help...

Do This
1. Unplug the power and Remove BIOS battery. Remove RAM and HDD and keep it for 24 hrs. Re-assemble and mostly it will be fixed. if not

2.Update BIOS. After Updating BIOS do step number 1 as above.
