Hi param3384,

Try these steps and check if the hard drive gets detected:

1. Disconnect the power cable from the computer tower.
2. Press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds to remove the residual power.
3. Connect the Hard Drive to other ports (SATA/IDE) on the motherboard. If the Hard Drive is detected, one of the ports on the motherboard is bad. If the Hard Drive is still not detected follow the next step.
4. Try a different data cable and see if the Hard Drive is detected. If the Hard Drive is detected, the problem is with the cable and has to be replaced.

Note: The steps above require you to reseat the components by removing the system cover/taking apart the chassis. Please perform these steps only if you are comfortable else seek a technician's help. Also, refer to the Service Manual for accurate steps and safety instructions.

If the issue persists reply with the System Model Number of your computer or the Motherboard Model Number.

Please do write back to us.

Thanks & Regards
