If it's not in disk management you can't assign a letter normally drives are displayed on startup or go into BIOS and it should give you list of drives with model numbers

Without knowing your pc its hard to say how to check bios it normally flashs the key to press on start often F2 you press it as soon as it starts before windows loads

Hi lakshi123,

I think to enter the BIOS on a Dell you need to reboot and continualy press F2 until the first screen appears and you see the message Entering Setup. Then just use your arrow keys to navigate to the BIOS.

I hope this helps!
