HDD not recognized

So I recently had a low voltage warning on my pc so I shut it down. After restarting, I get a Reboot and Select proper Boot device message. I have Windows 10 installed on a Western Digital Black HDD. I can feel the and hear the HDD spinning so is the problem the cable? I had an extra SATA cable and no luck. Any ideals what could be going on? Thanks in advance.

If the WD Black is correctly recognized in the BIOS menu,
Check the boot device order in the BIOS menu
and
Check your drive order/priority in the BIOS menu.

I should have mentioned that the HDD is not being recognized in BIOS. I will try for the easy solution in replacing cords and work out from there.

Check that the voltage readings of the power supply are within specifications.
If the readings are within specs,
Test with another verified working HDD/SSD for reference, using the same SATA data cable and same SATA power cable.
If the reference drive is correctly identified, then the WD is likely toast.

Try changing the SATA cable and the port around if that doesn't help it is a good bet you drive is dead. GL
