Windows 7: Suddenly, a hdd icon pop out?

05 Dec 2009   #1

Window 7 Ultimate 64 bit Retail
Suddenly, a hdd icon pop out?

After installing my new heat sink, I start up my computer for 2 times to make sure all my HDD are working fine.

After I managed to make my soundcard 'read' (because I have no idea why it does not detect at all until I move the card to another PCI slot), I found out that there's one more HDD icon showing under My Computer and it read as Q:/

I went to Disk Management, but there's no Q drive at all. I have no idea how it appeared.

Clicked on it, not accessible for both Admin and User/Admin mode.
Right click and checked that there's no space or bytes at all.
Is there any way to delete this drive off?
