When i look in my computer my second hard drive isnt there
You Simply could have what is known as a partitioned hard drive and this will show up as two in My Computer, one is usaly the backup oporating system installed by the manufacture and the other ( C drive ) is the main drive, but they are both on one drive

1. Make sure all cables are connected, does your bios detect the drive on startup?
2. Is the drive formated and set active?
to check if your windows sees the drive and is it active go to your desktop and right click on my computer -> manage -> Disk management.
You should see something like the picture below:
Your first disk will be Disk0 and 2nd disk will be Disk1 If you cant see Disk1 then the drive is faulty OR not connected properly make sure the drive is working with cables attached.
Listen if the drive spins. If it doesnt then something is wrong.
If you can see the drive there then you might not have made any partitions onto it. You can make new paritions to the disk right there, right click on your disk1(your 2nd hdd) and create a new partition. If that is not available initialize the disk with rightlick and blablaa .. I hope this solves it. :-)
