First thing you can do is reseat the hard drive, sometimes they just loose contact.
If you reseat the drive and the drive is not detected and identified in the BIOS, then buy a replacement

First make sure usb cable connected to harddrive is working fine.
try it in different usb ports.
Press windows key +R key so you can see run then type in run "devmgmt.msc" then press ok so you can see device manager uninstall all usb drivers then it automatic install usb drivers.
Also you need to change registry for that type in run "regedit" then press ok then you can see registry editor then locate below key.

On most laptops it's pretty easy to remove the hard drive. Usually there's an access door on the bottom, while some others make you remove the keyboard. Once the drive is out, the easiest thing to do is hook the drive to a USB drive adapter. Then you can simply plug into a USB port on the new computer and access the data on the drive. Here's a typical adapter from one vendor so you'll know what you're looking for.

Yes you can.
Unfortunately you haven't given your OS. I'll answer assuming it to be Windows XP.
Click Start button and click 'Run'. Type 'cmd' and press Enter key. A 'DOS window' will appear.
In this DOS window, type CHKDSK C: /F
This command will check the Hard Disk and try to repair errors found.
Try this and let us know the result.
Good luck!, and thanks for using FixYa!
