Help! For a few weeks I've been getting delay/write error messages which have been 'cured' by rebooting, however after doing that today my d drive isn't showing as being present on XP (my comp or system devices). the missing drive is a seagate 80gb

My spec is XP pro/1 gb RAM/3gb P4/5 hdd (inc the missing one)

Any ideas?

double check that all of the connection are secure, liek the ones from the IDE cable to ther motherboard etc. However, this sounds like a failing hard drive, you might want to see if you can access it through the commanbd prompt.

Click on start | Run | type cmd.exe | then when that shows up, type (without the quotes) "cd d:\" This should take you to the root of your D drive.
