Since September, my computer has been having problems. After numerous failed repair attempts, my friend fixed it for me. It worked for about a week, and then two days ago, I decided to try and get the whole thing working. When I got the computer up and running again, I switched to another hard drive I had (I have three). I wanted to switch back to my original (larger) hard drive. I reformatted, and for the first time in months, it worked!
Unfortunately, I got greedy, and I tried to get my other hard drive hooked up, too. I managed to get that particular hard drive working, but they wouldn't work together. After trying different things, I decided to try and install Windows again. However, when I try to install it now, it says I don't even have a hard drive installed! I know that I've hooked everything up right (I even took the entire computer apart, and put it back together to make sure), but it won't detect my hard drive at all...any of them! When I boot up the computer, it tells me there's a disk error, and I need to insert the system disk. When I do, it sends me to the installation setup, then tells me I have nothing installed, etc.
Glaring at it with murder in my eyes isn't helping any.
