If you cannot see your missing partition in disk management
(Start - right click my computer - manage - disk management)
then it is possible your motherboard does not support Hard disks bigger than a certian size (e.g 60GB).
Check the motherbaord manufacturers website to see if there is a BIOS update to fix it.

Also, if your HDD is randomly starting and stopping, the power wire going to the drive might be bad. Try replacing it with a new wire. As for the partition, do what macarrick said.
