Are you asking if I have tried uninstalling the drivers for the devices?
I did try that.
In "System Information" I found this stuff. Does any of this shed any light on the problem?----
Primary IDE Channel
This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use.
Name Primary IDE Channel
Manufacturer (Standard IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers)
PNP Device ID PCIIDE\IDECHANNEL\4&CB9060A&0&0
I/O Port 0x000001F0-0x000001F7
I/O Port 0x000003F6-0x000003F6
IRQ Channel IRQ 14
Driver c:\winnt\system32\drivers\atapi.sys (5.1.2600.2180 (xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158), 93.13 KB (95,360 bytes), 10/3/2001 9:02 AM)
Error message on Secondary IDE is the same as one on Primary. Error message on SCSI/RAID Host Controller says This device cannot start.
eeeeeeeeeeeeeek - is it possible for a newbie to solve this? :doh:
