Try to put the drive in another PC and see if the same problem arises. If it does, then the drive definitely has a problem.

try changing the jumper configuration (if any) and put on "Master" or "Cable Selct". how old is your pc? Its possible that the possible that packard bell did not allow the BIOS to see more than what your previous drive had. Try checking in the BIOS Updates section, there might be another BIOS fix.
