ok by connecting your hard disk to your computer restart your pc and press Del or F2 or F12 key according to your manufacturer and enter into BIOS there try to see your Hard disk that is not recognized by your pc!

If it is SATA hard disk and you know in which sata port it is connected just in BIOS check for option whether the hard disk is set as off mode instead of on, as you did not provide any info about your pc specs i dont know how to guide you!

Hi frzferoz,

Did you use a specific tool to set the hard drive's password. If the drive is visible in BIOS and in Device Manager, there is a chance that the drive is working normally. Most probably, the issue is with the password. Since you have valuable data on the drive, try using a Linux Live CD in order to access your files. If you manage to back it up, I recommend you to format the hard drive, using the Diskpart command from the Command Prompt. I leave you more details below:

Hope this helps
