Where did you get Win7? How is it activated?

Fill in your System Specs in bottom left hand of post.

Check your BIOS for updates, on the Support Downloads webpage for your model PC or mobo.

Run all Important and Optional Windows Updates, after enabling Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3) . Set Updates to Automatic.

If drive still isn't seen, install and run Partition Wizard Check File System
and Partition Wizard Partition surface test on the external.
