Hi. So here you go, I have a Seagate Barracuda HDD with a capacity of 250GB. I installed the HDD in my PC (Internal). After I checked the HDD bios it was detected and I restarted my PC. After my PC booted windows there was a text "To skip disk checking, press any key within X second". So I wait until the check is complete. After checking is complete windows boot as usual. After successfully entering windows I checked in disk management and my HDD was not detected. I also checked in the device manager, it's not there either. After that my PC restarted and skipped HDD Checking. After logging in, my PC went blank, only the cursor could be moved. After I tried removing the sata cable and plugging it in again, the result is the same

Is that drive older than you ?

I would buy an SSD, unplug the HDD, plug in the new drive and install windows. Then hook up the HDD and transfer files across.Or just load your backup disk; but I would still replace that HDD with an SSD when convenient.
