partition error message

when i click format a 150 gb partition space in disk management option i recieved the following message
"An unexpected error has occurred. Check the System Event Log for more information on the error. Close the Disk Management console, then restart Disk Management or restart the computer".
and the drive does not appear like other drives in MY Computer

Please give us details about what partitions are already set up on the drive - a snippet of a graphic of the drive from computer management in control panel would probably be most helpful.

Also, as pip22 asked you on techsupportforum, Did you check the log as advised?

Have you done the steps that Gregrocker advised you on sevenforums?
