    Everything boots fine, but twenty minutes into my computing session, i hear a click and my hard driving spinning down. Then this secondary hard drive no longer is recognized. Why is this and what could i do?

    Enter BIOS setup and see what settings are in your power options for shutting down.

    You could also look in the Power Options in Windows.
