    go to start>run and type in diskmgmt.msc. If the hdd is installed properly, it should come up in there, and all you need to do is right click it and assign a letter to it..

    if it doesn't appear, then there may be other drives/partition/network drive taking the letter, which you'll need to change, then reboot the pc before you can give it a letter

    If it's a brand new hard disk, it may need to be partitioned and formatted via disk management too.
