If you have no data to lose on the drive, try doing another fresh install of Windows, but this time, go into advanced drive options and delete all the current partitions (this option comes up when it asks you what partition to install Windows on). This will give you a truly fresh install of Windows. :)

Be careful with this because if you have a Recovery Partition on your system and no recovery disks you will not be able to recover your system.

Please Go to

1: START and the click on RUN
2: Type in devmgmt.msc
3: Click Enter


To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop

Please explain and also are you still having problems with your issue?
It has been 18 days since your last response and I was wondering if the issue has been resolved?
If so can you explain how it was resolved so others may be able to fix it if they have the same issue.
If not please let us know and we can continue with helping you to resolve the issue.
