    You should download HIRENDS BOOT CD and check your HDD for bad sectors.

    As I said, that hard drive is just not recognized at all
    If I can't find it in Disc Manager or BIOS
    I doubt I'll find it there ;)

    Rather than not being detected at all, I suspect that Disk 1 (the 3GB drive) is actually your HDD, with a corrupted controller on the logic board. If I remember correctly, this can be fixed by flashing new firmware by someone who knows their stuff.

    Then again, as there’s no valuable data on that drive, I would say you might as well get a new drive anyway. When a drive fails once, even if you manage to get it working again, I wouldn’t trust it.

    Jus received my new HDD
    installed it and all, seems like my old one is broken
    The new one works :D

    My old one was a 3TB, but I had a big deal on it
    Sadly, I could only afford a 2TB this time, but it still is a lot :)

    I side with you on that, data loss is incredibly frustrating and can be expensive to impossible to get back.

    Best is to just get a new drive, even if you're only going to store things on it you can redownload.
