The 13.33GB partition was called D prior to having problems... are you sure?

Code:
diskpart
sel  disk  0
sel part 1
det  part
sel part 3
det part
exit
Post output
Please post

kaktussoft, I'm sorry, I have no idea what your asking me to do, and to be honest, I am not 100% sure that it was marked a D: partition, but there was a partition next to my C: partition.

If everything looks normal to you from the snips I posted, I'm okay with that, I do not want to try to fix something that is not broken. My computer has never given me any problems up until the point that my CD/DVD drive disappeared, and I got that back easy enough, so if I do not have to mess with anything else, thats good with me. But the post you put about the output, I have no idea how to do that, or what that is even. I can try if you walk me through it.

partition 1 is type 27 (hidden NTFS)
partition 3 is type 17 (hidden [and also NTFS]... partition wizard told you)

Laptop manufactureer did that on purpose, so you can't mess around with it. That was always the case.... no problem at all.

Is drive you're missing something else???? usb stick, external disk drive?

No i'm not, I have two WD 3tb external hard drives, and one Toshiba 1tb external drive, plus a mini toshiba 500gb external and a 32gb flash, but none of them were plugged in the last few days.

It seems that I have overreacted, perhaps due to my extreme ignorance in these matters, and possible miscommunication with Greg, and I think my topic title was also naive. If you see nothing wrong here, I take your wisdom to truth. However, as I said, I have never had my computer blue screen on me before, I have norton 360 and run it regularly, and I downloaded malwarebytes and ran that, never had a virus detected, so why would Partition Recovery Wizard Mini-tool cause my computer to blue screen to prevent damage?

We have no idea what your computer used to look like.

Are you missing any data ?

Did partition wizard cause a BSOD... how are you so sure? Disable automatic reboot on system crash, so you can see the bsod. Or look in eventlog what did cause it.

kattussoft, everything looks good, no BSOD, everything seems to be well in place. I was after a problem that was not really there. If anything comes up I'll give you guys a shout. I'm sorry to waste you and Greg's time over this issue, but I really appreciate the attention you guys gave.

I hope you and your family have a really nice holiday and new year. Thanks again,

Brandon
