It may have failed - - if it has you'll have to replace it.

You can try testing it first with SeaTools for DOS.

Download the bootable ISO file, create a CD with that file and boot your PC from it:

"i was doing soemething to my sata internal 160 disc drive"

What exactly were you doing & why? If the drive is no longer being detected in the BIOS, it has likely failed. If you were working inside the case, make sure all the cables are securely connected.

i gt to recognized the disc by doing this, using hirens 10.0, then selecting start boot cd, then hit next, then slect mbr (master boot record)tools, thn i think boot fix utililty then i think mbr tools ,then DOS, then option 8, the think is that it got me to a part where it gave me the option to type bootpart.exe and restartit and the disk appears now then in the list of the bootin g items tgheter with the cd rom

fdisk doesn't exist in Windows 7. What exactly are you trying to do? Is Windows booting?

Doing the best I can here... And remember, there's always more than one path to success. :)

If the drive is recognized in BIOS then you can try running a Start Up Repair from a Windows 7 Repair Disk (CD). You should have made one when the machine was new but if you did not then you can use another Windows 7 machine to make one as log as both machines are either 32bit or both 64bit and use that.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
