My 1B Hard Drive is not showing on my file explorer ("This PC"), or Disk Management

HP Recommended

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Ok so I just realized this a couple days ago (however it could have been a problem for a while) but my secondary storage isn't shown on my file explorer specifically on "This PC" and I can't find it on Disk Management either. However, interestingly my secondary storage is shown on Device Manager and I can also find it when I right click local disk < properties < hardware. I can see both my ssd and hardware and it says both drivers and everything is working fine and up to date. I try going on BIOS system and it didn't really help much either. I also uninstalled both ssd and hardware from device manager yet the problem remained the same. I honestly don't know at this point because I also tried taking out my hard drive and putting it in a different port and also tried replugging the power cable and sata cable but to no avail. I don't know what to do at this point and I don't even think my hardware problem because it was running quite fine and I just had this pc for a little more than a year now. Does anyone know how to fix this? Also on my disk management it shows my c drive disk 0 partition 1 and disk 0 partition 2, as well as only disk 0 at the bottom and there isn't any unallocated. If you guys need any more additional info feel free to ask.

next is BIOS

and not unplugged, or lose it 2 cables 4 ends  as in RE SEAT THEM.

 

never ever do that , why do that? I guess you meant the driver, removed and PnP reloaded.   Internet working first :""????????

I also uninstalled both ssd and hardware from device manager yet the problem remained the same.

 

I actually use my ear to listen to any HDD spinning heard, I use $5 stethoscope. (or the screw driver trick to lazy to teach)

ask any mechanic how to do that it is SOP in the GEAR head world..

if it does not spin try other power cable and other SATA cable and all SATA ports free.

 

frankly are lots of tests.

test HDD in 2nd PC

test HDD in external USB drive doc or enclosure (a $10 tool )

tested in all sata ports

and in all case must be heard to spin that motor;. like me now.

 

 

NO warranty answers by me.
