I installed a new hard drive, new operating system disk from HP (back up disks (19 of them) would not work) than the application and driver recovery, it will not take the quickplay disk( it says computer is not enabled) do I need it. I have two partitions on it volume ©: Basic NTFS 107.43 GB capacity ( 101.03 GB free space), and one in volume (D) Basic the file system is empty with 4.35 GB capacity and free space. the computer seems to be working ok, but I can not load the quickplay disk , when I do I get a message saying the computer is not quickplay enabled. Do I need this quickplay ? I use the computer mostly for for internet and watching movies. Also the broadband 802.11 b/g WLAN keeps shpwing a yellow !, and a yellow ? under network adapters and other devices. I I uninstall these and than reinstall with the driver adisk it works untill I shut it down, when I start back up I have warnings. I am not computer savvy my wrenches and sockets do not fit this thing.
