    If you can try re-seating the Hard drive...that means taking it out and then putting it back in.

    If it still doesn't recognize it in bios then the HD could be faulty

    hi ajanth, Doesnt sound good! i dont have a lot to do with laptops but here goes.

    How old is the drive, is it noisey, has it packed in maybe? (but that shouldnt cause it to not show in bios)

    Or you might have a virus / trojan!

    may i sugest going to samsung website and trying their hard disk utilities called ESTOOL : http://www.samsung.com/global/business/hdd/support/utilities/ES_Tool.html

    run some diagnostics and c how u go..
