Hello everyone and thanks for reading.
I have a Dell Dimension 4700 as a secondary computer and ever since yesterday when i start it up it beeps once and reads the following message:
Drive 0 not found : Serial ATA, Sata-0
Drive 1 not found : Serial ATA, Sata-2
Drive 2 not found : Parallel ATA, PATA-0
Drive 3 not found : Parallel ATA, PATA-1
This problem hasn't happened ever to my computer, it only happened when my father decided to sabotage the computer because he was mad.
I don't know if he took one of the hard drive cables to the HDD, because theres only one cable going to the stock HDD, and im pretty sure its the Sata cable. Ive looked all over the internet for jumper settings and what plugs into where, Ive looked on my own computer's HDD and there is a blue cable (which i think is the SATA) and a Orange/Black/Yellow Cable that reads P5. When I enter into the Bios it does not recognize the harddrives either.
Im almost positive he took a cable from the HDD, but im posting to either confirm or deny my suspicion, all help is very appreciated.
