Windows 7: Took ownership of an old vista drive on a win7 machine, now nothing

Took ownership of an old vista drive on a win7 machine, now nothing

I recently built my first desktop using Windows 7 pro x64. It uses a boot ssd and a 320 gig for storage. Having gotten that set up, I decided to try putting my laptops drive in there as an internal drive (laptop had died/dying to what I assume was a graphics card issue), transfer data I wanted to my new hdd, then reformat the old drive and use it as a secondary overflow drive and backup. So I plugged my drive into the motherboard and psu using the SATA connectors. Drive already had win vista. Drive showed up just fine at first, and I changed the file permissions and then took ownership of the drive using the Windows 7 native tools. It completed ownership and worked fine for about five minutes, then stopped showing up completely. Restarting did nothing. I tried changing SATA ports on the mobo as well with nothing showing up. Going into the BIOS reveals that the mobo doesn't see any devices. Is my drive completely bricked, or is there a way around this?
