If you know where all the data you really need is I would recommend making a Linux Live CD and through that moving all files that you require (even ones you ge the Admin problem with on Windows) onto an external drive/DVD.

Instructions on how to do so can be found here your LiveCD (if you can't do it on your PC try and borrow someone elses to do it.

After all your data is backed up, format your drive and re install Windows.

It's not an ideal solution but something is really really wrong with your PC.

Hi Max,

Check the cable connections to the drive - unplug them and then reconnect them. Check the jumper setting, it should be on SL. See if it appears in your BIOS now. Until it appears there, it will not appear elsewhere.

IDE Drive not accessable

Unfortunately, the slave IDE drive still does not show.
It happened to me before when I had to reinstall Windows 7 & somewhere I came across a page which allowed me to enable it !!!!
