New harddrive not recognized - help!
I bought a new WD scorpio blue for my hp laptop. backed up all the data on my old hard drive, removed it, and put the new hard drive in. windows is not seeing it, and i'm not sure the bios is either. please help! i'd like to use the new harddrive (bigger capacity) instead of the old, but i don't understand how to have the system know the harddrive is there.
the laptop is an hp compaq 8510w. i had Windows 7 running it on for about 4 months. the new harddrive is the western digital blue scorpio 500gb.
Thanks for any help,
