umm... an even better question.... not only why did the computer go to the repair shop.... but why didn't they install it themselves?


Oh yes.. and have you by any chance looked inside your computer to see if the hard drive is even there anymore?

You should be booting from the CD, and when prompted by the Windows installation routine to "Press F6 to install drivers" you should be popping the driver floppy in the drive and then pressing the function key.

What if you have lost the driver floppy?

I have a removable HD which lights up when system is on, but HD cannot be detected. The problem started when I had a problem with my other pc {Ntldr missing ...shit!}. I swapped hard drive - inserting problem pc's HD onto the removable HD position (slave}. When I returned back; my computer failed to detect the removal drive. And it has been like that ever since {can't get to some vital programmes anymore.
