Hi I boot up my pc and are treated by the message boot and select proper boot device

I looked in bios setup and it my HDD is not shown And there is no option to change it.

I have tried unplugging the cables to HDD and replaced but still no luck.

My HDD still spins up and sounds like it is working.
Can anyone help

The common solution is to discard it and buy another one. But it can be an issue of the motherboard also, so better try this drive in an external enclosure also.

You can try this drive in some USB case and use a new SATA data cable to other SATA ports.

Be sure that both ends of the SATA data cable is plugged in and if USB case or another PC can't see the drive, the drive is gone.
