Hi,

My dad bought this pre-assembled CPU PC last year. It worked fine until last month. Now, My WD HDD (SATA WD5000AAKX 7200rpm ) isn't showing up and I'm not sure whether it is failed or not.

I have used Easy recovery essentials only to find that there's no Hard disk connected to my PC (but i can hear the Hard drive running but i just don't know whether it confirms it's integrity)

I have another WD HDD(SATA WD10SPZX -24 5400rpm) from my old laptop and I want to know whether i can use this on my desktop.(The pins seems to fit)

I'm not familiar with this laptop-desktop drive collaboration and for a record I can't buy a USB sata adaptor for now. So, what should I do? Can i check my probably failing HDD by any means? Can i just plug the laptop drive into the desktop?

Thanks in advance.
