By using diskpartcommand in Command Prompt I can view 5 partition of my hard drive but when I go to My Computer I can only view 3 partitions. What might be wrong, how do i resolve this. Please help me.

Additional Information:One thing I have noticed that few day ago i had installed Ubuntu but it did not suit me so I reverted back to Windows. I think that this is due to that Linux. However there might be an another problem, If I'm right then provide me a right way and give me a way to use those both partitions.

Click start --> RUn -> type the diskmgmt.msc . now disk management will open. there check whether any partition changed or not. it may be converted to other file system, convert to fat32 or ntfs

Be very careful when playing about with partitions! One wrong move could make your system unbootable and/or lose your data.

If these are partitions left behind by Linux then they wont show up in My Computer. My Computer only recognises FAT32 and NTFS partitions. But they will show up in disk management.

To reformat them you will first have to delete the partitions, then recreate and format as a new partition.
