    You need to install the SATA drivers for that machine...they can be found at the motherboard manuf. website...unless you still have the Driver CD in which case they will be on there.

      two problems
      1. i dont have the cd (it didnt come with one)
      2. the company who made the whole computer (including mother board) have now gone bankrupt
      the company was IQON technologys
      so basicly am i screwed?

      Not at all...
      DLoad install and run Everest Home...
      It will tell you more than you need to know about what's in that machine...
