well number 1, you have a low quality or lowend power supply, it should have more connectors
unplug the other extra hard drive, leave the new hard drive on a power lead by itself
check and make sure you aren't trying to run a new sata2 hd off a sata1 motherboard/chipset
adjust jumper per manufacturer directions if so
bios or post should see the new hard drive, windows(my computer) will not until it's initalized and formated
No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
