In simple form is there a way to get this D out of here. It doesn't do anything. When I try to install things on C it says I do not have enough memory and I have plenty. D will not let me anything. Thanks,,Marilyn

There is two ways:
1- by using Partition Magic program, it will help you to delete this partition.
2- use Windows 98 se startup disk, Fdisk to resize C and delete D.
Good Luck

I don't think a drive would cause this.

I think you have bad ram.

Here's a download that will test it.

If you need ram and don't know what ram you need.

Download this, find motherboard info.

Even if to just write down so you can go to your local pc store to buy it.

Good luck.

you could always try this:
Go into the device manager and select your HD
There should be an option in the properties of the HD to force a drive letter.  After this, you should reboot your computer.

Do you know where the D came from?  Was it after you installed something?

The orginal CD-ROM was a "D", you removed the original and installed a new CD-ROM on the same cable with the same jumper settings but Windows assigned the new drive the letter "E". The old drive must still be in the device manager. Uninstall the old "D" CD-ROM, restart the PC and the new drive should now be "D"
