Drop to an Administrative Command Prompt, and enter the following commands. Let's see if we can get that puppy running again.
Diskpart - hit enter
list disk - view list of disks in computer
Select disk (enter number of disk that corresponds to your 128Gb SSD) press enter
list disk - just to make sure the asterisk is beside the 128GB SSD
create partition primary
select partition 1
format fs=(whatever you want FAT32, NTFS, etc) quick
exit (yes that is exit twice)
