today i turned on my computer and it worked fine, until i noticed my F:/ drive was missing, i have 2 harddrives, C and F. and my F wasnt showing in "My Computer" so i restarted my computer and i see it, but then my computer freezes later so i restart again and i see what i normally see, boot up splash screen and stuff....then i get a black screen right after that says "Primary slave Hard Disk Error press F1 to resume"...i press F1 and i get
"Reboot and Select proper Boot device
or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key."
i've checked my system bios setup and i see the Primary IDE Master is "Not Detected". but the slave is...i go to Boot Device Priority and tried to pick the harddrives but i don't see their names on the list..seems like they dissapeared or something. they're set as booting to my floppy and dvd rom drives.....any help would be great thank you
