Computer failure Tags: Computer Hard Drives Components Last response: October 11, 2010 8:15 PM in Components Share hkettler October 11, 2010 1:18:58 PM My computer will not recognize the hard drive. It was working fine, but now it doesn't recognize the hard drive even in the CMOS. Is the hard drive bad, or could it be some other problem?

If required, change the power supply connector and/or the SATA wire.. Try connecting in some different SATA port also.. damasvara October 11, 2010 5:40:15 PM I just checked my cousin's office HDD.
