Sony Vaio AR31S hard drive problem

Hi there - I recently had my graphics card updated on my Sony Vaio laptop, but now I seem to have lost 50% of my hard drive. I should have drives 0 & 1 with 120 GB of space on each, but I only have drive 0 showing. Is there a way to access this? Any help would be gratefully received - many thanks!

Have a look to see if its in disk management.

If not there then reboot into BIOS and see if the drive shows up there.

Thanks for the replies - yes it should have 2 x 120GB hard drives. I've tried disk management and it doesn't show up in there, and I'm not sure how to reboot through BIOS - is it by pressing X or some other key during start up? Cheers

TRy removing and refitting the drive to remake the contacts.

F2 key as it first switched on to get BIOS
