Hard Discs

Hello - I'm a newbie here, but had my first machine back in 1959, so I know a little! Problem - I have a Dell 5150C running XP Pro, and it can't see the HDD. I switched it on, blank screen! The disc sounds and feels OK, but when I look in BIOS, in the start-up sequence it says "Disc 0: SATA Disc (not present)"

I had this happen on another machine around ten years ago, and I know there's a simple way of correcting the disc ... but I can't remember how, except it was in the machine (no external help). Can anyone help?
