Have you checked inside the machine to see if the cables have come loose? If it is a SATA interface drive, you might try another SATA port if there is another one available.

Does the drive show up in the bios? Look in your computer manual to see how to access the bios.

And if that doesn’t work follow the directions in Kerry56’s signature on how to delete the upper and lower filters.
