Global Global2004, Dec 13, 2012 #13 sach2 Major Geek Extraordinaire Hi, That it isn't showing up in BIOS is bad.
The recovery options would also be on the same problem HD so if the HD is not being recognized you should get some error. But you can confirm whether the HDD is dead and nothing is visible on it.

You should probably verify that the SATA cables are snug to both motherboard and the HD as charlieken80 suggested. Any more information that you can think of (Is this a HP computer ??)

The STxxx HD and the TTST DVDROM and you are looking for a third device which would be your boot HD.
Thank you. If it is recognized then don't turn off the computer and perhaps there will be a way to back things up. My diagnosis would be a failing HD.

I have a vista cd from a previous repair for a friend and could use this and the ceo sticker to reinstall, but was hoping to repair the installation on this i went to my setup and ran the Smart Short Test and it passed also.First sometimes it starts and shuts off 3 times before booting up. Go into th BIOS and see if your drives show up. Check This Out Testing: Boot Path, Error Code: BIOHD-3.
