Sometimes with external drives, Windows fails to assign a drive letter to it, which means Windows Explorer cannot see it. A different PC or laptop might assign a drive letter to it without any problem, so the drive works okay on that machine.
When drive letter assignment is causing the problem, you can assign a drive letter manually like this:

Plug the drive into your HP PC, then go to:
Control Panel > Admin Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management
In the bottom-right panel, find the bar which relates to your external hard drive.
Right-click that bar and select "Change Drive Letter & Paths".
Click "Add".
Choose a letter.
Click 'OK'.
