hi, im new to daniweb but i dont know were else to turn
I have posted this same thread on intels community and 200 veiws later, no one has gotten back to me with any possible solution.
last month i had given my friend a Gateway 500x desktop computer as an upgrade from there windows ME machine
I have restored this computer multiple times and this is the first time i have ever had this issue
before i gave it to him, i did a complete system restore loading Win XP media center edition along with complete updated drivers, everything was working just fine. now i go and hook it up and the internet wont work. i tryed to reinstall the driver and do manual connections and it still wouldnt work. after i did all of that, the motherboard wont reconize the DVD/CD drives or any other accesory. at this point the ethernet port has completely vanished from the system so i did another clean install. the problem is still there!! it is extremly frustrating and at this point i do not know what to do.
what i think is it could be a potential BIOS problem
i have replaced the motherboard and processor about 4 years ago
Intel Celron D 2.6 GHz
El Paso motherboard? (i dont know exactly, its the most common)
768 Mb of RAM
windows XP Pro 32-bit
80 Gb ATA Hard Drive
i would really like to know how to resolve this problem
