Hi harbinderkur. If you have data on the hard drive, DO NOT try to use any software to test it, because it WILL stress your hard drive and probably you are going to loose your chances of getting it back.
Try using other computers, if you have a Windows PC try a MAC by getting an external hard drive enclosure and connect it via USB (believe me it works and also the other way around). Im talking about if you dont hear any clicks when starting the hard drive. In case you DO hear clicks (the famous click of death) then could be several things, the System Area, or the logicboard, the heads, the platters, etc (things you cant fix yourself) but please... in case your BIOS does recognize the hard drive, dont use any test software because you might make things worse. Like I said try other OS first. I hope this helps and please don't forget to rate and write positive feedback for our free support today. Thank you :D

PC not detecting HD


Hi,
HDD not Detecting only if you HDD data cable damage, HDD power Cable damage, HDD port damage, or HDD bad sector. But normally you change HDD data or power cable or mother board port. And i suggest mother board all connection disconnect and only HDD connect and open bios and search your HDD detected.

Thanks..

Hello,

Go back on Device Manager, right-click the HDD and choose 'Uninstall'. Go through this then unplug and plug back in the HDD. Hopefully if the drivers you downloaded are installed it will recognise it first time.

If the harddisk conected in your system are not dected


"ASSUMING YOU ARE USING A SATA HDD"

check the bios settings.....

if your hard disk detection is enabled or not...

if yes...(yet your system is not detecting your hard drive)

then....go the manufacturer's site and download the respective sata driver of your hdd (particular model number)...

burn it into a cd...

insert the cd into a usb cd rom/writer.....

then try to install windows.... let the system boots from the cd

at the time when it says "press f2 to install driver"

press f2...

then browse to the location i.i. usb cd - rom/writer and install the driver...


now your system will detect your hdd...

if this info is useful


don' t forget to say thanks...

try to check it on CMOS setup, and see if ur HDD is detected there, then also check the jumper settings of your HDD, is it connected as master drive, or slave, then check other devices jumper settings for CDROM or other HDD connected to your PC. (do this for initial troubleshooting)
