It would have been better if you had opened a new thread rather than jumping into someone elses.

More details are needed, what operating system are you using etc.

Is your BIOS detecting the drive ?.

Is the drive being shown in "Device Manager" ?.

If so try deleting it and reboot, so XP can install fresh drivers.

If it's not being shown in device manager, can you do a restore to a point befor you deleted the viruses.

Smile The Regedit did not work for me....

Hello,

I've tried the suggestion about deleting the "UpperFilters", etc. but it does not seem to work for me, for Code 19.

See below.
Maybe a clue of my problem for some expert?

When I click on "My Computer" in addition to viewing the drives that work (e.g. Root Drive C:, floppy A: etc.) I also see:

CD Drive E: F: G: and H: There should be only ONE there!
They all have the CD-ROM type of icon but not the icon one normally sees when a CD-ROM drive is installed.

I cannot find a way to delete the extra "CD" drives.

On the DEVICE MANAGER only one DVD/CD-ROM drive appears with the yellow
exclamation indicating my problem

I have tried re-installing the drive, changed ribbon cables, etc.
This CD-ROM is PRI-SLAVE. The PRI-MASTER is my root drive.

ANOTHER QUESTION: If I disconnect ALL the drives and I force the PC to boot from my WINDOWS CD can I make a fresh Windows XP Prof. installation?

Can you tell I am frustrated?

I thank you.
Happy Holidays.

The extra drives could be virtual drives that some burning programs install when they are installed, you need to check if this is the case.

If they are virtual drives, the easiest way to get rid of them is to uninstall the programs that put them there, on reinstalling them select for a virtual drive not to be installed.

To do a fresh install, go into the BIOS and in the Advanced section Select for "First Boot Device" CDROM.

On boot up it will say "Press any key to boot from CDROM" so press a key.

Then follow the various screens to select to format C drive, when this is done XP will be installed.

When the comp restarts as it does a time or two during the install it will say "Press any key to boot from CDROM" again, DO NOT PRESS ANY KEY or the install will start over again, leave it and after a few seconds it will resume the install.

Once XP is installed, go back into the BIOS and select as "First Boot Device" FLOPPY.

If you plan to use the onboard LAN, take out the network card befor you start the install of XP.

I thank you Colin,

I'll try first to see if there is an IRQ conflict that causes my problem. Then I'll proceed with your recommendations.

Thanks
