Can't find hdd in computer

#1jibberjabber102Posted 3/26/2014 7:58:46 PM
Hi, well I built a new pc today and everything is working fine but I can't see the hard drive in computer or have the option to install anything on it when im trying to download antivirus.
The drive shows up in bios and I can see it when I go to properties of c drive under hardware it says its working properly.
I'm not sure what to do here.
c drive right now is an ssd and I would like to put other stuff on the hdd but i cant see it.
Please help.

the hdd should have a different drive letter.

go to control panel > disk management > you should see another drive that may be unallocated. format it and assign a drive letter to it.
