The PC will not detect a drive that is not spinning. Make sure the power plug is seated properly.

Why won't the hard drive activate on my acer

Check the data and power connections to the hard drive.
Go into the BIOS settings and see if the hard drive is detected.
If the BIOS cannot detect the hard drive then most likely the hard drive is faulty, especially if you cannot hear the hard drive spinning.

Hard disk not detected

Check to see if hard drive is fully plugged in/reseat cables/harddrive. see if this fixes the problem
if not listen to see if the drive spins up, if it fails to spin up then the hard drive is bad
if hard drive spins up but clicks at regular intervals, it is bad
Try a different drive cable
Try to replace with a known good hard drive, if it still is not detected check the bios to see if the drive controller is enabled.

If the controller is enabled and cannot detect a hard drive the controller may have failed.

The hdd does spin but is not detected

A clicking noise from a hard drive typically indicates that the drive is about to fail or has failed completely. If the drive is still under warranty, contact Western Digital for a replacement drive. If not, you will need to purchase a new hard drive. There are services to recover some of the data off of a failed hard drive, but the rates can be quite high.

Running DIAG504fcd.iso says no hard drive detected

It's possible the hard drive disks are not spinning, the power and data cables may need to be reseated. Otherwise, the drive is history.

My bios doesn't recognize my hard drive

Do the neccesary jumper cable settings. then manually detect it through your bios. If not detected, try to replace the ide cable. if still not detected, try to feel the hard drive if it spins, if not, the had drive is damage.
