Hi!
I have a weird error on a computer I working on. I have cleaned it from spy wares and trojans and now everything runs fine, except that the disk manager doesn't see any hard drives, external drives or usb sticks. Not even the system drive. But the system drive is visible in "My Computer".
But when i connect the usb stick the computer detects the hardware and I can find it the hardware manager but it does not show up in My Computer.

Logical Disk Manager and Logical Disk Manager Administrative is up and running.

Any ideas??

run a repair install, or sfc /scannow from the run box - seems you removed too much...

DDR and DDR2 are generally backward compatible ( faster RAM works in a slower system )

Same for pc-66/100/133 RAM.

Issues may arise based on motherboard chipset for low vs. high density.

So I do not think that there is any universal chart available.

Please provide details, and maybe e can help out.
I hope this helps !

WHoopps, wrong window....

This is a strange problem, and I agree that an SFC may help resolve it.

You may also need to redo the latest service pack.

Other option is a repair install

I have the same problem. Repair install does nothing.
