I built this computer my self about 2 years ago. I had a 20gb HDD that i use to have my OS on but 20gb is not enough so i installed a 160gb HDD as well. Both are compatible with each and were working with no problems until last Wednesday. First my video card went so i took it to a shop and the put the Gforce 200 series in. I got it home, worked fine. I installed a game off of steam onto my E: (160gb) and tried to run it. It worked for a while then nothing happened everything froze so i restarted my computer. Since then my E: keeps on disappearing and reappearing. I have multiple programs on it nut have only tried to run steam. It runs but after about 10mins into it I either get a message in the notification area saying Error saving smf% and then everything on that drive that was running would shut down and the HDD will disappear or the HDD will just dissapear without any warnings or notifications. After rebooting a couple of time it shows up but it asks to reformat when i try to enter. If i restart a couple more time it comes up fine but if i try to open anything up it says its corrupt. If i reboot aftre that everytthing works well and good for 10mins again then i have to reboot half a dozen times. I have tried several things such as uninstall/reinstall the drive, updating it and rolling it back.

Is there a way to fix it? Without re-formatting?
Please help!
