Hey i just transfered a new motherboard into my`computer and since then i have been having numerous problems\
1.i cant boot with my windows xp disc
2.the windows xp thats currently installed that was installed when i had the old mobo is playing up reall bad unusable.
3. i can only get onto the computer in safe mode.
my first main problem was my dvd drive not being picked up by comp, making things rather difficult then it would sometimes show and then sometimes show as a removable flash drive depending on what i had touched in device manager .
i tryed reformating through command promt but it says C: is being used and you need to dismount the drive would you like to do this?
(Y,N) i say Y
and they say the partion cannot be locked denied. so currently im really buggered.
My new motherboard is a GIGABYTE S-Series 945GME-DS2 its pretty much same motherboard exept for the brand and the old one had an agp slot and this one is PCIE.
i hope this is a common problem and has a common fix please help
im currently using my mates laptop and as you probably understand a computer is rather important to one is heavily reliant on it for school work and recreation.
