Check in BIOS if it is detecting the hard disk or not.
if BIOS is not detecting the hard disk then definitely there is some hardware problem.
BIOS detects the hard disk even if it has some bit of failure. I know it because i kept using a failing hard disk for many years. So if BIOS is not detecting any hard disk then hard disk has totally failed. Or it is not properly connected.

only USB is shown?
Yes. :(

For the second time, I tried DISKPART.exe and here's the result;

DISKPART> list disk

Disk### Status Size Free Dyn Gpt
-------- ------- ------- ------- --- ---
Disk 0 Online 3841 MB 0 B
Disk 1 No Media 0 B

DISKPART> sel disk 1

Disk 1 is now selected disk.

DISKPART> list vol

Volume ### Ltr Label Fs Type Size Status Info
---------- --- ----- ----- --------- ------- --------- --------
Volume 0 E DVD-ROM 0 B No Media
Volume 1 C ESD-ISO NTFS Removable 3840 MB Healthy
Volume 2 D Removable 0 B No Media

After that, try to see if HDD is shown in GParted. If not, please download HirensBootCD from this link
http://www.hirensbootcd.org/files/Hirens.BootCD.15.2.zip
Unzip it and make a bootable USB using Rufus or YUMI (anything about creating multiboot USB you can see following my signature). Try some HDD diagnostic tools from DOS Menu within Hirens Boot.
Alternatively you can download Minitool Partition Wizard to check if it's able to see your HDD

https://www.partitionwizard.com/download/pwfree91-x64.iso
Create bootable USB with Rufus.

Tell us the results. If your HDD isn't shown after all, it's probably dead.

Connected HDD to laptop. Disk Management says "No Media".

Okay, I give up. :( All my hope is gone.

EDIT: Using my old Laptop's HDD (300GB). Currently installing Windows 8.
