i have a hp m9365 pc, vista sp2, 4gb memory, and 2 hard drives c and e both 500gb. but today when i put on my pc drive e was missing. also it took very long for my pc to load up, the part that took long was when it loads up windows and it just seems to freeze for a while but then continues to load after. i tried loading the computer in safe mode but i got an error. i restored the computer back to a few days ago but that hasn't changed anything either.
Look in the BIOS to see if you can see the drive, I think its a Connection Problem to the Motherboard or a faulty Controller Card on the Drive. Ignore if anybody talks about jumpers, as it was working as is.
thanks for the help but the disk check did not help. i cannot see the e drive when i click on my computer, so i couldn't do the check on that drive.
i think maybe they are 2 separate drives because a while back i reset my computer back to it's factory settings so everything on the c drive was put back to how i bought it but my e drive was still the same all my files were still on the e drive.
if i reset my computer back to it's factory settings again do you think the e drive will show up?
