    It seems like your PC is not detecting the HDD as the connection might have been loosen. Open the case, remove the HDD cable connection from motherboard and also from HDD, clean the cable and remove dust by blowing air into the connection points of cable, then connect it properly as it was before. Also check the power connection. Then switch on your PC and see if the HDD is detected or not.

    After connecting the HDD cable properly, check in the BIOS if first boot device is hard disk or not. If it is not detected, check this HDD on some other computer to verify whether your HDD is still in working condition or not. If it is detected on another computer, then HDD is working but your old computer is not detecting it. Then there must be some problem with the sockets on motherboard that connects the HDD.
