I didn't do anything to my drive, so I don't no why that just happened. OK, when I turn on my laptop, I suddenly realised that I lost my hard drive and can't play or install any games. I have OS_Install(C:) and Data (D:) in my computer but the hard drive is missing. How do I get my it back into my computer?

So in other words your laptop is not booting up is what you are saying? :D
If the hard drive is gone then there is no way for the system to run.

OK is drive E your cd drive?
You need to give more details. If it is cdrom does it show up in My Computer?
Go to Start then to Run
Type in compmgmt.msc and click Enter
On left side click on Disk Management
On right side you will see you hard drive.
Now I need you to take a screenshot and attach it to your next reply. Do the following to take a screenshot while the above is open and showing on your desktop.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop


Attach it to your next reply

I had no problem now and fortunately the Drive E is back after 3 hours when I turn on the computer.

Will my Drive E be disappear again? If it will then how do I prevent it from disappearing?
