    I asked this in the main forum but no luck. It'll go through the dell bootup screen and thats it. under setup for the primary and secondary devices it says "unknown device" for all 4 drives (1 hd, 2 opticals, 1 zip) on 2 IDE cables. ander boot sequence it only lists the floppy drive. It worked fine friday when he left but when he came back it wasnt working. I unplugged the IDE cables and plugged them back in but no such luck. The drives do power up. Is there anything that can be done?
