Hi Rocky ilagan,

Please check if the hard drive is detected in BIOS. If it is not listed there, you may need to open the PC and check the connections. If the laptop is under warranty, contact the seller, because opening the PC will void the warranty.
If the HDD is properly connected and still not visible in BIOS, you may need to connect it in a Desktop PC as a secondary drive. If it is still missing in BIOS, unfortunately the drive may be damaged and you should get a new one.

Hope this helps
