when the drives are recognised in BIOS, are any letters scrambled or something? Because once something similiar happened and it turned out that my jumpers were set incorrectly. Check the jumpers on the back of your drives and see that one is master and one is slave.

Jumpers on drives are set. This morning they were working fine, Pre new board. No letters are scrambled.

Followed your link, Checked my registry but its not that. any more ideas?

reboot to safe mode.since its windows 98 theres two ways to solve this. you can goto the registry and delete the enum key makeing windows find all the hard ware and install drivers.on rebooting.

the othere way is safe mode and goto device manager and remove every thing and reboot.
your problem is new mobo old o/s its trying to load with all drivers for old board.

Where do i find "enum" and if i delete this do you think it will find my cd drives? Also What if I remove all devices how will i load them again without a cd?
