Shutdown. Disconnect it. Restart. Shut down. Reconnect it. Restart.
Is it then detected or shown in Device Manager?
Any chance a cable has come loose?
Can you try another connector on the motherboard?
If none of that helps, I'd guess it has died. Those things are $20 commodities designed to be replaced from time to time.
