Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
Go into Windows Disk Management and see if the external hard drive is assigned a drive letter. If there is no letter assigned then Windows won't recognize the drive. The link below is for a website that will explain how to use Windows Disk Management and assigning drive letters.........

I have a similar problem. I have a Lenovo ideapad 100s 11". My windows 10 is not updated. I suspect that it might be the cause of the external drive not being able to be read. I tried the solutions for the posts, but it does not show even on "Disk Management". The external drive operates perfectly on other PC's.
