my BIOS/CMOS won't recognize my hard drive. I'm trying to install a 4GB hard drive. The BIOS/CMOS is set to AUTO detect the hard drive. I had a 1.6GB hard drive. I took the 1.6GB dirve out, plugged the 4GB in and restarted. The BIOS/CMOS won't see the drive. I tried to reinstall the old drive but can't get the BIOS/CMOS to see it either.

When the pc starts up this is what I see.
In the upper left hand corner of the screen it reads...
Award Modular BIOS v4.60PG, An Energy Star Ally
Copyright (C) 1984-98, Award Software, Inc.
Version 1.15IN137
Intel Celeron-MMX CPU at 400MHz

In the bottom left hand corner of the screen it reads...

On the CPU chip on the motherboard it reads...
SN 142686298 (C)1998

Does anyone have any idea what I can do to get my BIOS/CMOS to see the hard drive. I would prefer to use the 4GB one since there's more space on it.
