If you drive is not found in the BIOS then it has most likely failed.

Never use duplicate file finders. These duplicates are often there for a very good reason (access from their programs).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Yeah, I found out about duplicate file finders the hard way.
As you can see, I'm still using the laptop, everything is still there inc. documents, pictures, programs et all. It gave me this wonderful piece of info after rebooting, it wouldn't allow me to do anything other than yell at the screen, so my solution was to take the battery out, wait a moment and then put it back in. Viola! It worked.
I had it repeat 1 other time during a defrag & I repeated the process.

I am planning on a new laptop, maybe sooner than I expected but am procrastinating at the thought of going through all these stupid files and pics I've managed to collect over 5 yrs.

That's good news, glad to hear your sorted it out and thanks for letting us know.

If it rears its ugly head again go to the Run box type this and hit Enter key:

sfc /scannow

Note the one space. This will run through and replace missing system files.

Sometimes you can copy files over but the problem is finding the right file versions.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
