If the drive works fine on another system, then it's likely that the drive is OK. Try checking the cables and the settings on the mobo (reset the BIOS to default) to see if that clears it up. Also, check to ensure that the mobo standoffs are properly positioned and that the mobo is not shorting out on the case/tray.
