    Hi, I've encountered this error upon restarting my computer because when I accessed it this morning the screen was frozen on my screensaver and I couldn't get out of it.

    I've tried using my recovery disc to use Startup Repair but my partition seems to be missing and when i use bootsect to look at my disk volumes it is also missing in there. When I try to restore my computer using a Windows 7 install DVD it only shows my "Backup" partition. I've also tried reordering the boot order in the BIOS.

    It would appear that your hard drive is having problems. First of all, do you have a current backup of anything important on the drive?
