hey guys first time posting. so recently i took apart each individual piece of my computer to dust them for spring cleaning. i put everything back in place and powered it back up but now my secondary hard drive isnt being recognized for some reason. i hooked up the cables properly and everything but when i go to 'my computer' to access it, it doesnt show up. it doesnt show up on disk management or even in programs like speccy or speedfan.


i have TONS of data on it and i really need it back. any help at all would be very much appreciated


possibly helpful information:

Speedfan screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/WwawQhv.jpg (i think the 127 degrees thing is a glitch, mainly because that would mean my rig was on fire or melting. it was showing up before i dusted out my rig as well, but thats another topic i guess)


thanks for reading and thanks in advance for any help

Disconnect...then reconnect...all cables to said drive...then try to boot.


Go into BIOS...and see if drive is reflected there.


If so...then go ahead and boot into Windows.


If not, it's probably time to run a diagnostic on the drive..and, possibly, replace cable to motherboard.
