Hi there Geikko,

Have you tried your old HDD on another computer so you are sure that the HDD is at fault but not your laptop?
Is the drive recognized by BIOS? In case it is not, I guess you should attach the new HDD to another system as well. If it gets detected properly, you will need to take your laptop to a repair shop.
