NO DRIVE LETTER ASSIGNED

I have 3 hard drives in my system.  I recently installed First Aid 98 and ran a few tests.  Shortly after one of the test (I am not sure which one) I lost my E: drive.  My BIOS (Award) shows it, when my computer boots, the auto detect finds it, Device Manager shows the drive but will not assign a drive letter to it.  What can be causing the problem?

Go to the Command prompt and type FDISK /STATUS this will show you how much of each drive is partitioned/used. If the third drive shows %0 used, then you lost the partition and all the data on the drive. If you don;t need the data that was on the drive, use FDISK to re-partition the drive then reboot. After rebooting the sys, format your new drive and you will now have your drive back. If you DO need the data, DO NOT re-partition or re-format the drive.  Your best bet it to contact a data recover specialist (I recomend http://www.ontrack.com/hc/ec.asp)
