Windows 7: I couldn`t see some disk partition (D: 0 bytes)

Win 7
I couldn`t see some disk partition (D: 0 bytes)

I`d like to hear your oppinion about win 7 and some problems I run into.

Few month ago I bought laptop with genuine win 7 installed. I can say it was big system improvement. i5 processor and 4g ram played well with 7.

However that didn`t last long. After a month my win crashed. I susspect that was cause I installed Office 2010 beta, which sometimes in that period made my computer very slow.

Now, I`m not that sure. Why? Well, after system reinstalation I didn`t install Office 2010 any more and my system worked great for month or two. Untill yesterday... It crached again, and this time, after reinstalation It wasn`t well. I couldn`t see some disk partition (D: 0 bytes) and new instalation was performing very very slow.
*Note, I made my partitions using some windows tool, after my first reinstalation, not before it.

I did small research about that, and found that few people already had the same problems. They have suggested I install some other system that will recognize my other partition for backup, since win 7 haven`t upon instalation.

I didn`t do that exectly, Since I`ve had backup, I`ve just formated all my partitions, deleted it and created new partitions by using tool within system installation, and for now it works fine.

So, what do you think what could cause this, just some system bug, virus, or whatever?

*Note, I did catch some virus in period before, but Nod32 had found and deleted it.
