I`ve just installed a brand new DVD-Rom drive (which was very simple to do)but my Win XP home edition is having problems with the driver for it. It has been recognised as there is a yellow exclamation mark next to it in Device Manager. I`ve un/re-installed the driver several times with no avail. The product handbook tells me to update the motherboard IDE controller drivers but don`t know the m/board manufacturer. I have and AMD processor with a K7S8X. 3.0 board.(info courtesy of Belarc advisor) Can anyone help. Cheers, Andy
Thanks guys for your help but my problem is still the same. That Sandra programme is excellent and it`s now telling me to update the BIOS which I`m scared to touch. Is this as scary as I imagine. I`d say I was a intermediate on PCs so can follow instructions quite well.
If you have a mobo handbook it will give you a step by step rundown on bios update if not download one from the asrock site put a floppy in the drive go to my computer right click floppy icon go to formatt then go to create boot to msdos disc then goto asrock site download awdflash then latest bios for your board then re-boot with floppy in the drive and follow instructions in handbook and pray that you don't get a power cut halfway through.
