As always I reformatted my HD in the usual fashion. Afterwards I went to the CONTROL PANEL, SYSTEM and did not see any ? marks. I then went to performance and it says C and D drive using ms dos compatibility modes. Now I have not yet formatted the D drive. I talked to a friend of mine who builds computers and he said I made an error in formatting. Well one can hardly make an error since there is one command. My system does not seem slow.
I also was getting remarks about finding new hardware which I knew already was working, but it still wanted to search for a driver for the hardware. I went and updated the program on the Intel chipset which eliminated most of the problems except the one above.
