The same dissapearance of Partitions(only worse)

As i saw in other threads many users collide with the problem of hard drive partition dissapearing. I have the same problem only worse.
I have a 160 GB samsung splitted in three partitions(my mom's copmuter) like so:
1 - 30gb - OS specific
2 - 100gb - media specific
3 - 20 gb - DOCS specific

After installing win 7 partitions 2 and 3 disspeared. No worries! i'l just change the drive lettter in disk manager.
entered disk manager found my partitions BUT it won' allow me to change the drive lettter. something about the view not being up to date.i googled around and it led me here where i found TestDisk. Testdisk sees it but windows doesn't.
