    We need some specifications and some history.
    • Is this disk IDE/PATA or SATA?
    • Is this a new disk out of a box or is it a used disk from another system or is it one that has been there all along and suddenly "lost"?
    • Have you made any recent hardware changes to the system?
    • Is this the boot/OS drive or simply a secondary?
    • What exactly do you see or not see on your screen that indicates the disk is not recognized?
    • What version of Windows are you running?
    • If it is a secondary disk, does Windows start and if so, does anything concerning this disk show in Disk Management? (applies to WinXP and 2000)
