I'm assuming you are on windows. Right click on My Computer and select Manage. Select the Disk Management option on the left. Right click on the partitions you are missing a drive letter for and then select Change Drive Letter and Paths. That should let you choose the drive letter.

Well I know what that means. You better back up everything and go buy a new hard drive. That is a sign it is going to fail

You need to prepare the drive for Windows. This unfortunately usually means reformatting. You should be able to tell it to reformat and prepare the drive from the disk management console if you right click on the disc.

Your hard drive is dying. The best thing to do would be to immediately back up any files you want to keep onto an external hard drive. Replace the hard drive and restore your files. I'm sorry for the bad news but I hope this helps.

Hi, Thanks for using fixya.

Replacement is easiest and cheaper It is a problem with your device not the drivers or software. You could take it in and see if it could be repaired. If it is under warranty opening the disk case will void the warranty.

Hope this helps

That can be done from BIOS setings. First check that both the disks have been detected by the BIOS.
Usually, the hard disk at sata1 (1st sata connector on board is for master drive.
Secondly, look for the bootup option and choose maxtor as primary drive (to boot from it)

Hope this helps!. let me know about *********** board details also, if further any assistance is needed.

Connect it to a different computer. If it still is not detected, then there is a hardware problem. Exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

Do you have a recovery CD or DVD that came with the unit? If so, try booting up from the cd and perhaps it will let you run a repair? Of if you can get into the BIOS of the unit, and that may be hard if your keyboard doesn't work, see if there's an option to activate the keyboard before bootup. Another idea is plug an external USB keyboard in and see if that works after a reboot.
