was it there previously? have you done anything to the pc like added another drive?
Are the cables on it properly?
If you have been inside PC since it lasted worked are you sure jumper settings are correct?
is the drive position enabled in BIOS (eg. primary master, primary slave, secondary master, secondary slave).
