Are you getting any error messages? If so post them.
You also might want to check ribbon connector going into the hardrive and where it plugs in to the motherboard in case you crimped it or unplugged it when dusting and putting the door back on. Also check power cable to Hardrive.
You can also go into bios and see if bios detects your hardrive also.
Another thing you can do is in live cd open terminal and type in
To see if your hardrive shows up in there also.
One thing to look for is a cable coming loose from the hard drive. I've had the ribbon cable from IDE drives get partially pulled out, the signal cable for Sata drive get detached from either end (drive or motherboard), and the power connector come loose as well. So, recheck all your cables. Pretty much what rokytnji said.
