  1. Go back inside the case, make sure it the 'rearange some thing' that affect the second HDD are disconnected then reconnected firmly. When you power on PRESS the F2/Del/etc. TO ACCESS BIOS (as it says on the screen), does the BIOS read the two drives?

    I went into bios and it read both drives and they are plugged in...i remember on my old pc windows would not pick up any new drive until someone i knew fixed it and he wom't tell me how unless i give him money and i am broke

    You could have caused static electricity then and shorted the drive / shaked it and broke the headers on the readers? My best suggestion would be to see what Computer Management shows under Device Manager. You might want to test the D drive in another computer. Worst case if if you replugged things around did you put it in a deactivated SATA Port (BIOS would show what ports were turned 'on') or had it set to RAID and 'broke' the RAID.
