Is it detected by BIOS? If not, then try pulling the drive out and then pushing it back in, making sure its secure. Should be a screw on the bottom you have to take out on some HP laptops, and then pull the drive out.

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
