before windows loads you get the option to enter the bios. Look in the Bios settings if the HDD is detected. If not then your check all your cables if they are still nicely fitted. If still not detected then take outthe drive and put it in another pc to see if it's detected there.
If your BIOS detects your HD then goto the website of your HD manufacturer and download the provided HD test (you'll find it on the support/download pages). Test your drive.

good luck
