    System restore should sort it.

    This advice assumes you are running XP...
    Remove case sidepanel (machine is powered OFF!) and unplug both drives.
    Turn on machine and boot to desktop.
    Shut down.
    Plug both drives in.
    Start up again and Windows should detect and install the "new hardware".
    If so, replace sidepanel and cross your fingers.

    this has happened to so many people on this forum it's sickening.
    Why does it happen to much.

    anyway, ariel and clocker's advice should fix it.

    The very same thing just happened to me this morning.

    Amusing, in a twisted, irritating way.

    surely this could be a bad/loose IDE cable ?

    I must have missed something, he tried loading a disc and his system went tits up, never mind, wonder what caused it?
