So I just snagged a 90GB Kingston HyperX 3k SSD this past labor day for a steal at $60. I already have my windows and games installed on my original 120GB Kingston HyperX 3k SSD. I have both drives plugged in using the same power cable string but separate I believe Sata(much smaller slot then the power cable on the back of the ssd) slots on the on the motherboard and the blank 90GB SSD is not showing up. It shows up on boot menu and devices with no issues but it's not like in the "computer" window where I can go through my programs, see how much space is used/left etc. Any ideas?

I have windows 7 64b home premium. In my control panel I see no System and Maintenance tab/button. I am logged in on the Admin Account too. Any ideas?

Type "compmgmt.msc" in the run or search window and run it. That will take you to computer management, then start with "In the Navigation pane, under Storage, click Disk Management. " from the above post.
