Tech Help Needed

My new build runs a solid-state and hard drive together, but the HD doesn't have a letter under Disk Management, and when I right click, the menu there doesn't give me the option to add one.

 

How do I name this drive so I can use it?

Couple things:

-Is the drive formatted? (Actually, maybe just post a screenshot of your Disk Management screen.)

-Try opening a command line, running "diskpart", then "list disk", "select disk N" (where N is the disk in question), "list volume", and posting the output here.

Gonna guess the 1863 unallocated GB is the hard drive.

 

First off, to confirm: this is a new hard drive (or at least one with nothing important)? If so, do as follows. Otherwise don't do as follows 'cause it'll wipe what's on there.

 

Right-click it (the area down below with "1863 GB") and look for an option to make a new simple partition or new volume. Follow through with that, and afterwards right-click it again and you should be able to assign a drive letter.

 

If there is data on it you want to save, you'll need some recovery software to repair the partition.

Yup, a new simple volume should work fine, assuming you don't want to do anything fancy with the hard disk (divide it into two chunks of space seen as separate drives, etc.)

Mostly, I was planning on using it to store stuff, to be honest.

 

Aaand, there we go! H: drive!

 

Many thanks, yo. Couldn't have done it without you.

There maaaaaay be a new issue though.

 

Even after updating the drivers on my nvidia geforce 660 ti graphics card, it says my card doesn't support Aero Effects??
