  1. I've had a known issue for a few days on one of my hard drives not showing up under "my computer" at all.

    -the harddrive shows up in BIOS
    -it shows up under device manager (however it doesnt have an option to uninstall it) ..was thinknig maybe if i unistalled it then rebooted the pc would pick up on new hardware.
    -its an internal hard drive not external

    I have vista

    my pc is the Toshiba Satellite X205-Sli1 all specs are the same except 4G RAM now.

    Thanks in advanced for any suggestions.

    Have you used disk management to initialise the disk and set it up with partitions ?
