    I think I'd start by testing the drive. Use Device Manager or physically look at the drive to figure out the manufacturer and then go to their website to download their drive diagnostics. Run all the tests on the drive to verify its ok.

    If it is then we can go ahead and repartition and reformat the drive if there's no data on it you really need to recover.
