Dell dimension 2400 doesnt recognise the hard drive

By ompza ·
This computer never used to start at all and recently it will start but keeps saying it cant detect the hard drive in the bios,changed the ide cables many times and tried different hard drives with operating systems but still tells me no primay master detected.tried plugging my hard drive to the ide2 connector with the cdrom but cant detect it,when i remove the hard drive it detects the cd rom in that connector.I reset the bios but it still wont detect any hard drive,tried unplugging all drives and remain with just the hard drive but the machine cant detct it,the jumpers are ok.I know ive set them right.do u think flushing the bios will help?is the motherboard dead?
