    Hello guys,

    My pc was working fine until one day it stopped detecting all my hard drives and sent me straight to BIOS, In BIOS it does not show any hard drives, I plugged my bootable windows usb to the setup and it did not detect them there also. I have a Gigabyte B450 pro Aorus. Here are the solutions I have tried:

    • changing sata ports, still same issue
    • using new sata cables, still same issue
    • I bought a new SSD and NVME m.2 these are also not detecting
    • I have moved the ports for the new ssd and nvme but still not detecting
    • updated my bios, they are still not detecting
    • I have checked the specs of the new hardware I bought and they are compatible with my motherboard but still not detecting.
    Please help me out! Let me know if you need more info about my PC! Thank you!!!

    Internal hard drive not getting detected after upgrading the computer to Windows 10

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that after upgrading your computer to Windows 10, the 8TB internal hard drive is not getting detected. I’ll certainly help you with the issue.



    However, please let us know:



    • How did you upgrade the computer to Windows 10?
    • Are you able to see the hard drive in BIOS?
    • Are you using a Desktop or a Laptop?
    • What is the make and model of the computer you are using?


    I would suggest you to check if the hard drive is being detected in BIOS. If the hard drive is not being detected in BIOS, then it could be a connectivity issue between the hard drive and the motherboard.



    However, if the hard drive is getting detected in BIOS, I would suggest you to try updating the storage drivers from the computer manufacturer’s website and see if that helps.



    Let us know the results.



    Regards,

    Nikhar Khare

    Pc suddenly stopped detecting my hard drives in BIOS and Windows.

    windows 7 not detecting hard drive

    I have this model WD5000AAKS

    It prompts me to load a driver, but according to the windows website, it should not. This hard drive is detected in my bios, but not by the OS. This is a fresh install, and there is currently no OS installed on this hard drive.

    Does anyone have any solutions for me to try?

    Thanks
