Good evening everyone,
I'm having a bit of trouble over here. I built a computer for my fiancee over the last year or so, and by that I mean I jumped onto logicalincriments and then shopped around... I know enough about setting up computers to know that square peg goes in square peg, how to install an OS, and how to google for fixes as well as my way around some useful tools (device manager, CMD, etc). Basically I know some stuff but my technical knowledge is limited.
Everything has been replaced from her old system part by part until today, we traded out her old slave drive for a shiny new SSD to run her OS off of. Prior to this replacement, this computer would do the strangest things. We figured out her old 80G HDD was dying; super hot, fairly noisy, laggy, etc. In the end, the computer would seize up for 5-10 min intermittently which sparked a quick little shopping spree over on Amazon.
Anyway to the problem:
So everything seems to be running miraculously smoothly right now, but we are missing one of her secondary HDDs. She has a multimedia and a work HDD so if anything craps out on the OS drive, we still have the important stuff elsewhere.
-It revs up on startup
-It shows up in the BIOS
-Device manager sees it
-It does not show up in My Computer
-It will not show up using DISKPART LIST
The work drive had the same issue, but just needed an assigned letter which was easy enough with DISKPART, no idea here why one is showing up but the other isn't. We have done a few restarts, but nothing more than that. Any suggestions? Id really appreciate it!
