Ok my toshiba 60gb 7200 rpm hd died after 2 years of service. I just replaced it with a samsung 40gb spinpoint 5400 rpm hd. After about an hour of messing around after trying to get the damn thing to get recognized, I realized that there was no noise not even a near silent hum comming from it. So I decided to jump start it by connecting the ide cable right as it is trying to reconize hardware. It worked and I got my OS on their the only problem now is that whenever i restart my comp or shut down and turn it on it will not recognize it unless I do the same process over and over again. What am I doing wrong I followed the damn manual and that didnt work. Please using the simplest terms as possible is much appreciated.
