Windows 7: Hard Drive not detectable on computer?

Hard Drive not detectable on computer?

My computer isn't picking up my other two hard drives. They appear when i turn on my computer and only sometimes with that. They don't appear to let me assign a letter or path to them either. They are both 250 gb drives and both are standard in computer but neither are accessible. If anyone has any ideas that would be great. Command line functions to check if i have drives isn't working either.

You need to give us more info.

The actual Asus pc model? Desktop, I'm guessing?

Do you have three hard drives? What are all three?

Can you bootup now?
