My external hard drive doesnt show up

[ Edited ]

So, i connect my external hard drive, 

The blue light is on,

I go check on my computer,

No external hard drive, nothing about it,

it does not shake like it used to tremble

Doesnt show on device manager,

Doesnt show "Remove it.."

My brother says it doesnt start, like my external hard drive is sleeping



My Computer: HP Pavillon DV7

Hold the Windowx button and press X to open the administrative menu. Select "Disk Management." While watching what shows up there, try plugging in the hard drive. Does something new appear there?
