Teen grandkids were trying to play a DVD movie on my system.  I have a Toshiba SD-M1212 DVD that "used" to be listed in device manager under "harddisk controllers"  I don't know what they did, but now in device manager under"harddisk controllers" there are 3 things listed.  #1 is, Intel 82371AB/EB BCI Bus Master IDE Controller, #2 is Primary IDE Controller (dual fifo), #3 is Secondary IDE Controller (dual fifo).  What happened.  They told me they were trying to load a driver they thought wasn't properly loaded.  I bought this system from Video Personalities 4 years ago.  As all know they were victims of "Fountain Technologies" I had a system crash about 2 years ago and had to reformat and install windows, (OS is Win 98).  Being totally new to computers it was a learning experience for sure.  All I have for drivers is a "Hardware Driver" cd that they send with 100's of drivers on it.  Unless know what is exactly in my system it was hard to find the drivers.  But Windows reconized my harddrive and the Toshiba DVD ROM.  Now it doesn't.  At least not as a it was "Toshiba SD-M1212 DVD-ROM.  What did they do and is there a way I can fix it?  My system is an Inteva PC-875.  Pent.III, 450 Mhz.  The DVD was 4.8X DVD CD-ROM.  It there anyway you can help me?

Thank you

Hi grandma,

I need you to do a few things.

1. As you boot the PC, press the Pause key to stop the memory count. I need the BIOS numbers that appear in the upper left and also lower left of the screen. This will help me identify who made the motherboard so I cna get your proper drivers.

2. Can you go to Device Mangler and tell me what is listed under CD-ROM drives? It is not unusual to have 3 drivers for a PII type system. The "global" driver for the controller and 1 for the primary and one for the secondary controllers.

3. Do you have any yellow exclamation points or question marks? If so, what is listed as the device?

iclarius,

In device manage under "cd-rom" all it says is cd-rom. My mother board is by BIO-STAR. It is a M6TBA system board. My sytsem is a PENTIUM III -450Mhz.,12gig harddrive. There is something else on boot-up and it says, "QUANTAM BIGFOOT"(TS) As stated in my question under HARDDISK CONTROLLERS it used to say, TOSHIBA DVD-ROM SD-M1212.
Thank You for taking the time to try and help.

Hi Grandma,

I am VERY impressed that you know the mb maker. Most people have no clue. Good for you :)

I presume that that the kids messed up the driver for the DVD player and that is all so, can you reinstall those drivers? You have the software for it?

As for the Quantum Bigfoot, that is a 5 1/4" LARGE hard drive that Quantum made for a brief period of time. The drives were a flop and quantum disconntinued them.

Do you have any yellow exclamations or question marks in Device Manager? this is important. It tells me if there are missing drivers or whether or not the system knows what the device is.

George,

I found the maker of the motherboard when I crashed my system and had to re-install windows 98.  I actually had to take and have it done as I didn't know I had to re-format plus I didn't know how. This is my first system and I am learning by trial and error (sometimes mostly eror)I thought it would be a good idea to know who made the MB so I bought a book that told me the simple way to find out. I then sent for a users manual.
This is a Plug an Play system and I have NO drivers for the DVD. All I have is a HARDWARE DRIVER CD that came with my system with 100's of drivers on it.  It took me forever to find the drivers for my Monitor etc., but the DVD seemed to have installed itself.  It is a 4.8X DVD CD-Rom. I have managed to find out some things about it. Toshiba's SD-M1212 DVD-ROM is Photo-CD campatible (single and multi-session) and can read any CD which uses the HIGH SIERRA or ISO 9660 format. ( found this out through searchng)  I did find that drivers are available for it on BBS/837-8864 ( I have NO IDEA what or where this is).  I have NO yellow exclamation marks in device mananger.  And my DVD is no longer listed there either.  What is listed under Harddisk Controllers is now as I stated in my question and it used to list ONLY my DVD.
Thank YOU

Grandma,

I did some research and there should be no need for any drivers for the DVD player. It should automatically work. This is what Toshiba says. The following should be the link to the Toshiba site where it states that no drivers are needed.

http://sdd.toshiba.com/cda/main.aspx?Path=/818100000007000000010000659800000000/818200000111000000010000659c000003c7/818200000103000000010000659c000003ca

Have you tried a DVD in the drive? Does it work with a CD-ROM disk?

Do this: Make a Win98 Startup disk (Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, then click on the Startup Disk tab and follow the instructions). Boot off the floppy and choose CD-ROM drive support. Put a CD disk into the drive and see if it works by typing DIR X:  where X is the drive letter of the CD Drive that is displayed on the screen.

All DVD drives should work just like a CD-ROM drive when the cd-rom driver is loaded. Only the DVD drives can read DVD disks tho.

Grandma,

Here are the exact words from Toshiba:

ATAPI CD-ROM and DVD Drivers

Toshiba's CD-ROM and DVD-ROM drives do not require any unique device drivers for Windows '95/'98/2000/XP/NT.
After installing your drive and re-booting, your system should recognize your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM.
Win '95/'98/2000/XP/NT Operating Systems support all Toshiba ATAPI CD-ROM and DVD-ROM drives natively.

George,
It will read a CD but will no longer play a DVD movie.  I did find out from my grandson (one who was messing around) that HE put in the Hardware Driver CD that I have and installed some Toshiba drivers thinking it would help.  Which ones I have no idea. He did say that when he did it that the screen became a black background and that it asked him a lot of questions to which he kept answering YES until he was prompted to restart.  He said he kept answering because he didn't know how to get out of where he was.  Could he have possibly messed with the BIOS or what ever it is called?  My sytem seems to run so much slower now also and takes forever to boot up.  I have cleaned everything out of start up that I don't need to try and fix that problem but hasn't done any good.
Again I thank you

George,

I ran system file checker and about cried.  There are so many files that have been deleted.  I tried to re-install them from my Win98 installation disk, but it told me they are not on there.  There has to be at least 30 that it told me had been DELETED and at least 20 that have been changed.  Deleted ones are .dlls and VxDs.  I have no idea how to restore them when they will not restore from my Win 98 CD.  I put in the "restore from" E:\win98 and a window comes up saying "could not find".  Please help.  Do I need to re-install windows again?

Hi Grandma,

Yuo can reinstall over Windows and have no fears. afrerall, you made it to be a grandma. Remeber when your mom used to tell you "you'll give me pink hair"? well your grandkids are doing thatr to you <LOL>

I would not fear reinstalling Windows over itself. If you knew the files that had been deleted and you can post them here, I'll tell you where to get the file from. they are in the CAB files on the CD. If you open windows explorer and double click on a CAB file, it will open up and tell you what files are inside it. You can drag and drop these files to your Windows or Windows\system folder. DLLs typically go into the Windows\System folder.

Hi Grandma,

1. Put your Win98 CD into the drive.
2. Close the Windows Installation box when it starts.
3. Open Windoze Explorer
4. Click on the CD drive to get a listing of the files on the CD
5. Go to the Win98 folder or where the CAB files are located.
6. Double click on the CAB files I listed and it will open up another Windoze window and list all the files that are in the CAB file.
7. Highlight and Drag the files to the Windows directory. Put all the files in the Windows\System folder.

George,

Thank You very much.  I will try this and see if it helps.  I did go into the registry (I think it was the registry) and looked for dates of changes made.  I found that Config.sys=system file what changed on the 13th of this months (day grandson was playing PC Expert) and that MS-DOS Batch file was also changed and Detlog.old.  Don't know if this has anything to do with my problems or not. As I said, I am NEW to these machines and learning from trial and error. And searching and searching.
Going to have to get some "Miss Clarol" as this "pink" hair is sure turning grey.  Mom once told me I'd be "paid" back.  Should have listened better. :) I will do as stated above and see what happens.  Again I think you Sir

Hi Grandma,

You can do that restore all the files by dragging and dropping.

1. Highlight the file (single left click on the mouse button).
2. Hold the left mouse button down and you can drag the file to the C:\Windows\System folder.
3. Once you have the file over the Windows\system folder, drop it (let go of the mouse button and it will be copied to the folder).

George,

I managed to get the files restored with the exception of a few which I don't think are all that important except maybe one= IsUninst.exe. I thank you so much.  I had forgotten how to drag and drop. Don't need to do it enough I guess.
Now can I go into device manager and remove CD-ROM and the 3 under harddick controllers and HOPE that windows will re-install my DVD.  I'm sure there is some Multimedia software that needs to me installed again in order for it to work right (able to watch movies) but I have NO idea which.  I'd give almost anything to find someone who either bought this same system or worked on them who could tell me what all is supposed to be here.  As I stated in my question for help, I bought this pre-installed from Video Computer Personalities from an info-mercial who fell victum to "Fountain Technologies"  As did the Inteva Systems. I know that when my system crashed the first time I never did get it back to it's original state.  I think there is suppose to be a VOODOO 2PCI card etc. in here.  I've never had guts enough to tear into the box.  And my modem dials twice before connecting.  Just a lot of little things that are sometime trouble some.
Thank you again for being so very patient with me on this. I don't know for sure what the files I coouldn't restore are but I think they have to do with the Internet.
Thanks again for being so kind and trying to help me.  It is very much appreciated.
