HP Envy 17 has stopped detecting second hard drive

Notebook Envy 17 Product Number E7A75EA#ABU
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Please help, my Envy 17 started to intermittently stop seeing the second hard drive a few weeks ago and now cannot see it at all. When I plug the cable in, the drive starts up and I can see the drive in an external drive caddy.

Thanks

@ssjjsd I recommend we start with a hardware test to identify if there are any hardware issues with the drive that's no longer detected in windows, using the below steps:

Install the latest version of the HP Hardware diagnostics (UEFI) on your device using this link:Click here for details

  • Hold the power button for at least five seconds to turn off the computer.
  • Turn on the computer and immediately press Esc repeatedly, about once every second. When the menu appears, press the F2 key.
  • On the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics (UEFI) main menu, click System Tests.
  • Click Extensive Test.
  • Click Run once, or Loop until error.
  • While the test is running, the time remaining and test result for each component display on the screen.

If a component fails a test, write down the failure ID (24-digit code) for when you respond back to us.

I bought 3 new cables off the internet, two didn't work but oddly one did. Don't know if it's coincidence or not but it's working at the moment so thanks for your help,
