Have you updated your BIOS? Have you verified your BIOS is capable is seeing a 1TB drive? Have you enabled all of the SATA ports in the BIOS and set them to AUTO? Try changing the data and power cables. Also, try plugging the drive into a different SATA port. If available, try plugging the drive into a different controller. Make sure there are no jumpers on the drive. If you are plugging the drive into a SATA-1 controller opposed to a SATA-2 controller, try putting a jumper shunt on pins 5 & 6. If it still doesn’t work, try the drive in a different system.
