AAARGH!
During a recent flickering power outage (my computer tried to boot twice before I could shut it down), I lost my D drive. Can I retrieve it and how? Your help and expertise will be appreciated more than you know!!

I assume your "D" drive is a separate second drive from your post so if you know how to get to the CMOS setup try having it re-locate your drive.

Do you know what I mean?

Also try this. Right click on My computer and open Properties. Click on the Device manager tab and see if there are any entries with red or yellow marks.

Sparky: Adding to NiteHawk's note, if you DO find that the drive has a yellow '?' next to it (may not even be ID'd as a drive, just a "device"), try deleting it. Then reboot. Windows should then 'find' new hardware, and install the drivers for it.
