Frown hard disk lost? need geek help Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

Since this morning my laptop won't show one of my harddisks anymore.

I have an Acer Aspire 7520, with two harddrives of 160gb.
The first one is divided in C (windows and programs) and E (empty)
The second one, which is somehow gone, contained all of my samples and music and stuff (good thing i've made a back-up of it yesterday)


tried rebooting a few times and it doesnt make any difference..

how do i get it back?

Check if the BIOS recognises the drive.
(When booting the machine, watch all the messages, one of them should say something like "press F2 to enter setup". Could be a different key though, it depends on the brand.
When the message appears you need to press the mentioned key to enter the setup (duh!?).
Once you are there, look carefully through all the menu's to see if there is anything like IDE device detection or something in that area. If you're not sure what you're doing then better take the machine over to a geek or go to the shop. You can make things worse by messing in the setup.
