    HDD not found (WXpHe)

    We have a network of 3 Pc's; Pc1 has 2 hard disk drives and on boot this morning dive D was not recognised. I have checked the bios and the drive is correctly recognised.
    Before I buy a replacement - can anyone suggest other actions to see if I can find D again please?

    When you say "...not recognized..." - did Windows yield an error message of any kind while it was loading? How about Device Manager to see if there are any yellow marks / exclamation marks in there for drive hardware? Try opening My Computer, Manage and go to Disk Management to see if two physical drives are shown. It could be that the drive's assigned drive letter got clobbered and you could fix it in Disk Management.

    Many thanks for your help. The hdd D was not shoing in my computer. However, after a brush and vac-up inside the pc, and a checking of cables / connectors the D drive has re-appeared!. Not too certain as to why this did happen though.

    Surprising that the BIOS recognized that the drive was there, if it was dust or a loose connection! Anyway, happy you got it squared away.
