    I recently updated to a new pc and used some parts of my old 1.
    But since i had enough components to make my old pc work i connected everything and tried running windows on it, but it would never find the 1TB HDD.

    Giving that the HDD wasn't spinning i thought that it died. But i decided to connect it to my new pc and it was working.
    So i tested the power supply on my old computer and it was giving 11.6V so it should be fine (on the power cable of the HDD). I even disconected most of my case fans just to test if i was using too much power and it did not help.

    idk the specific specs but:
    8GB ram
    1TB SSD
    I5 intel
    sapphire tri-x r9 290
    coolermaster 620W
    Gigabyte P55aud3

    Did you move the power supply to test? Sounds like power issue to me.
