Reinstall the "damaged" drive into the computer (I doubt that it's damaged)

Try to remove the sata cable on the motherboard side and plug it to another socket. Make sure the cable is well secured on both ends.

When you enter bios, is the the drive recognized at the bios? Is there anywhere in the bios that gives you an option to enable or disable sata? If there is, please enable. save the changes and let the computer reboot.

If this doesnt' help please let us know what of driver you have (maker and model) and I'll give you a link where you can download diagnostic tools and sata drivers for the drive .
