Hoping somewhere here on this board can help me with my pc problem. I bought used pc from that famous auction site... the hard-drive was bad when it arrived (Maxtor 80gb) so installed a used Western Digital 40gb instead. Formatted and then loaded XP Pro on it...that worked fine.. but as I wanted some extra storage for all pictures and stuff, I installed a second hard-drive tonight ( Western Digital 80 gb, also used but was told in working condition. I set the settings on the two drives as Master and Slave..with the operating system (40 gb as the master with XP loaded...and the 80gb as slave with the pin's. I booted it up and a flag came up (Found new hardware) and after a short while another flag came up..(Your new hardware is ready to use) Eureka !! I thought.....njaaa...not exactly right ........ When I go to "my computer" it doesn't show up If I click on DISC C in the same screen and "propertys" the second hard drive (80) shows up ? Why doesn't it show on 'My PC ? and I was trying to defragment the whole pc...the second hard-drive doesn't show up either...and same with Norton...just drive C shows up ? It's there, but no icon and not able to format or use it... Im stumpfed....... this pc..HP Pavilion A 288 N. It boots up without any problem..takes some time but think that's OK, and no flicker or error messages...Just the second hard-drive doesn't seem to be around, but the property section it says it's enabled and working.. Any ideas ? Am I out on deep waters or is this a easy fix for a newbie like me ?
