  1. Hi
    When I start my computer windows doesnt show my F drive
    C drive has windows and all programs on
    F drive [internal] has all my documents on
    D drive is dvd cd
    I have to keep rebooting until it appears...about one in fifteen
    It isnt in disc management

    how do I restore F drive instead of constantly rebooting and hoping for the best

    Run error checking on the drive in question.

    hi
    Thanks....ordered one off ebay.
    Not too good at hardware but took cover off pc and fiddled with cable onto motherboard which seems loose and not a solid fit. seems to work at the moment...could be a dodgy pin??
    anyhow going to set it up as external usb unit so can use with laptop too.

    Thanks for help and take care
    Adrian
