Well, I recently installed an internal hard drive onto my computer, and it was recognizing it for at least a week or so. But now, it doesn't even show up that it has been installed or being used on my computer and won't let me access it at all. It's not even on My Computer. I tried reinstalling it, but it won't work. What should I do?

Can you hear or feel the problematic drive "spinning up"?

If he drive is not "spinning up" 1st check the voltage on the power source connected to the drive. If the power source voltage is correct, and the drive is not "spinning up", then you may have a defective drive controller board.

Do you see it in Disk Management?

Right-click Computer > Manage > Disk Management.
