cannot update to service pack 2 for other reasons
A friend of mine awhile ago installed a bigger ram chip and did some work to my computer "To make it safer and faster". After he did what he had to do my computer ran much faster and much better. But in the process of what he did, he changed some settings which make it unable to update to service pack 2 without reformatting... (According to Geek squad at Best Buy)
One of these may help:
1. Uninstall the drive through Device Manager.
Restart computer. The drive will be automatically reinstalled.
3. Download, and run Restore Missing CD Drive patch
Double click on cdgone.zip to unzip it.
Right click on cdgone.reg, click Merge.
Accept registry merge.
4. Go to Device Manager, click a "+" sign next to IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers.
You'll see two items:
- ATA Channel0 (or Primary Channel)
- ATA Channel1 (or Secondary Channel)
Right click on each of them, and click Uninstall. Confirm.
Restart Windows. They'll be automatically reinstalled.
1 - I Cannot find the disk drive in the device manager, It does not show up.
2 - Tried this before coming to this forum and it did nothing. But this is how I determined that the problem is the drive not being detected.
3 - Just tried this now and no change.
4 - Tried this after 3 and still no change.
Thank you for being so patient, Hopefully we can get this resolved together
