My computer has been experiencing random freezes, for which I cannot find a reason or cause for. Usually a reboot would get everything all fine again, but recently they've increased in frequency and sometimes even freezes immediately after boot up. After my last reboot effort, having come out of safe mode, my machine did not boot at all.
I booted from my Win7Pro CD, found my way into command prompt and discovered that my E: has renamed itself into C:, and my C: seems to have vanished. I've cycled through all letters and cannot seem to locate it. My DVDRom still remains as D:, and what I assume is the recovery type system is labeled as the X: (x:/resources or something similar).
Obviously I can't boot up as the original C: isn't where it should be, and my E: (now the current C:) doesn't have windows on it naturally.
The Startup Repair and System Recovery features have no effect. How can I locate where my proper C: has gone to, and put it, and the original E:, back where they should be? I really can't afford to lose any of the data from the original E:, it would be a devastating blow. I really don't know what to do!
Any help is greatly appreciated!
