Is your computer formatted?

Question

HELP HELP HELP I sent you an e-mail over a week ago and have not received a response. I will sumbit it again. I purchased a computer with a 40GB hard drive. I purchased an additional 40GB hard drive and had it installed, my computer designated the drive as "F". I had Best Buy do some work on my computer. I was having trouble when I booted up from computer. I asked the computer to restore my setting to a previous setting. Now my computer does not recognize my "F" drive. Can you help me to restore my "F" drive? Please respond.

Backup your data Check CMOS to confirm that BIOS recognizes the drive and that CMOS settings are correct for the hard drive Boot from FDISK From the FDISK meny display the partition information If FDISK says that the partition table is missing or corrupted, then restore the master boot program with the command FDISK/MBR and try to boot from the hard drive again
