Have you tested to see if the hard disk can be seen on another system? If not, let's make sure that it hasn't failed first.

Next go into Device Manager and see if there are any devices with red check marks or yellow exclamations. If there are, reload the drivers.

Once you have performed those functions, check back with us if you are still having issues.
