Can you please post a screenshot from Start -> Run -> DISKMGMT.MSC?

Please expand it to full-screen first, and spread the columns so that all the text between the column separators is visible.

Thanks.

Well... you're certainly correct. That second drive is gone.

Is that second drive with E on it a SATA, IDE or SCSI drive? Internal I assume, although you didn't specify. Or is it an external USB drive? Or something else?

Is it visible in the BIOS? If you get into the BIOS at machine boot time, does it show up in the list of hard drives? Or is it gone even from the BIOS's perspective?

Have you tried just pulling the power and data cables from it, and then re-seating them?

If it's a SATA drive, have you tried pulling the SATA connector to the motherboard and trying it in a different SATA connector on the board?

first thing to try is if it is internal, shut down and replace the data cable.

typically when something changes in the bios you know about it from messages you get during boot, so i normally ask for people to check their power cables, data cables first.

If you are using Sata 1 cables, replace with Sata 2.
