Re: virous in removeble harddisk
Try to boot to safe mode, and see if it is detected. If it is detected in safe mode. Uninstall and reinstall any drivers that came with your external hdd. If still no go, reinstall windows. If after reinstalling windows, still not detected, replace external hdd.

IF YOU ARE USING A NOTEBOOK, IN MOST CASES YOU SHOULD HAVE A RESTORATION PARTATION ON YOUR HARD DISK.
If this file on your CD/DVD is corrupt, the chances are good it will find many more needed to complete the installation.
Find your restoration partation or get a good working copy or XP to install from.
Ccleaner will not remove a virus, but is excellent for removing useless files. I find that the free version of ad-aware is very good for virus removal and protection. It is available at www.download.com search out ad-aware free, spell carefully, there are imposters. Spybot search and Destroy is also a good virus remover to have. I use both. AVG free is a good virus protection to install either before or after you have cleaned up your system. AVG is at this link: http://free.avg.com/

Hi! i can understand your problem. It happened to me once. I tried to run the PC in the safe mode but on safe mode it doesn't run the antivirus program. If you have your harddisk of IDE type then connect your friend's hard disk in your PC as a Slave and Yours as a master.
You can do this from your bios setup.
Then Scan his hard disk by your antivirus software and remove all the virus from his Harddisk.
Sounds like you need your manufacturer's SATA drivers.
This problem exists a lot when installing Windows from scratch on SATA hard disks. When you start the installation, Windows prompts you to "load additional drivers". It's at this point you put a floppy disk with the SATA drivers in.
If your install is already working, but just stopped as you say... then you could hunt around the BIOS for a SATA "compatibility" mode, which will get you booting straight away. Install the SATA drivers and you can then put the drive back into normal operation instead of compatibility mode.
This is also the reason why your other hard disk with Windows can see the SATA disk and optical drive... it probably has the SATA drivers installed.
1.) Check thge ide cable connecting to your harddruve in the computer
2.) Check the power cable connecting to the harddrive as well
3.) if those fail then your harddrive is crased and you will need to get a new one.. then reinstall your software
