Hi nahleary :D
You need to provide information about your computer, this includes is it
a laptop or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP
and if it is provide the model name or series number.
If the HDD is not detected in the BIOS it may mean the HDD itself has failed
the power supply to it has failed or the data transfer ribbon/connection has
failed or become disconnected, dependent on whether it is a desktop or laptop
will determine the advice you may be offered.
