Internal hard drive disappeared ........

Check in the BIOS that it is recognised. Windows won't see it if BIOS can't.

A trick that worked for me when I had same prob was putting hard drive in freezer overnight (double wrapped in plastic to keep out moisture) and then following day it was accessible and I was able to copy off all data.
