davy -  what pc or laptop is this?
in general, if the bios does not see the disk - it is bad, or the cable has bad contacts

Make a boot CD or floppy on another computer.  Set you bios to boot from that CD/disk.  
You will probably still have problems.

I would look at the disk manufacturer's website for diagostic utilities.
