Ok, for some odd reason my secondary "slave" hard drive just messed up on me.

It doesn't show up on "My Computer", "Device Manager", and BIOS. and it makes my Primary "Master" not show up on BIOS only.

and before it stopped working it, windows xp said some thing like. "Write Queue Failed". and a couple of days ago it did show on bios and Devise manager, but not on "My Computer".

its a Fujitsu, by the way.

and its 40gigs.

By the looks of it, it's a dead fujitsu.

Is it on same IDE channel as master? (You did say PRIMARY master and SECONDARY slave)
If it is not then it must be set to master mode also.
Slave drive without master (on the same channel) can mess up BIOS HD detection.
Only, XP bypasses BIOS, when it comes to detecting drives.
Try seting it on master mode, and it just could bring it back to life.

ya its on the same one, and its set on slave, and sometimes it makes my XP boot up really slow, for some reason.

ill try putting it on Master alone a little later today.
