C drive showing 0bytes and won't format but D drive shows 33GBs??

\015 Hi I'm working on an Acer Aspire 3680 Its C drive(80G from factory) shows absolutely no data and won't format. It asks me to check if it is installed. However, I am showing 33 Gb's available on the D drive and additional 7.8 GB's on "PQSERVICE" X: drive? If the C drive was bad wouldn't those two drives also show as empty or unreachable? HELP?!?\015

Answers :

No. As each drive is on it's own "circuit" then they each show as good or bad. Try taking the drive out and making sure that it is fully in and retrying as sometimes a loose connection will cause a lost drive.
