I am trying to fix my mates computer.
Initially it was looping at the boot but I helped him work out that this was because he has a usb keyboard. Using my normal one got him into windows.
However, now we discover that the usb ports arent working, the floppy drive is not recognised and the ethernet thing isnt either so no internet.
and the raid controller too, although i'm unsure what that is.
I ran Belarc. It tells me this.

I tried looking for the motherboard and came to this page. I dont know whether these are right.
I hope this is enough information. Please help my friend get back online.
