lost 2nd hard drive

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by John McCallie, Oct 19, 2004.

  1. Compaq 4880, win98, 128mb ram, 12gb bigfoot (primary, C:), 40gb maxtor
    (slave D:).
    I started to do basic maintenance per instructions on Mike's web page.
    Deleted the temp files (no problem), ran HD Valet (no problem that I was
    capable of discerning), downloaded and installed EZ Reg Cleaner and it froze
    during the install. Had to cold boot, computer came up but no 2nd (D) hard
    drive, letters had been reassigned.
    Did a manual restore on the reg, still no D: (actually, that letter has
    been assigned to one of the cdrom drives).
    This happened once before, probably over a year ago, and after a day or
    so, it just inexplicably reappeared. Can anybody help?
    Thanx, John

    Does the drive still show up in your bios (standard) under harddrives?
    Check for a loose ide or power cable and download the appropriate drive test
    util from your harddisk vendors homepage. Proceed according to the
    instructions.
