I was hoping there was some sort of fix, because today especially, it took way too many ejects/plug back ins, and I thought it was totally fried.
The main problem is typical for Windows when the factory Fat 32 volumes are left one rather then first nuking it off the drive entirely and seeing a fresh NTFS partition go on. If you can get the drive working long enough to back everything up from it a good reformat should be a big help for you as long as the drive itself is working normally and not seeing any defect or bad sectors.
It won't hurt updating the chipset drivers if any were corrupted or now missing as suggested by electrotune1200 simply seeing an updated driver set go on. With a laptop you are using integrated graphics not a separate AGP card there.
