|heres my system:|
I just recently reformatted my entire system, and after the process was completed I started running into problems. 1.. no sound. nothing but system beeps. So I looked up device manger under sound and It shows a "no audio device" message even though there is. I remember before I did a system recovery I had a Realtek high definition something, and now I can't get anything.
The 2nd problem I noticed is a hard drive is missing. There was a 5 GB C: (recovery) drive pre-format. The drive came with the computer and it held the most of the systems important files and now its completely missing. On a added note, this isn't my 1st format. I did this 2 other times because of virus issues.
The reason for this reformat is I upgraded from windows xp media classic to windows xp pro a month prior and recently decide to go back to windows media classic (which is included on the emachines operated disc) because the xp pro version was giving my problems (internet issues).
My 3nd problem is in device manager under "other devices" I'm getting yellow ! icons on all 3 devices. (PCI device, PCI simple communications controller, and SM bus controller).
Thats all the problems I noticed thus far but I'm sure theres more. I would really appreciate some help
