Format the space with NTFS and then Windows will be installed on that partition.

I was surprised by a family member today with a visit from an IT Tech after some discussion we came to two options because of the state in which my hard drive was in and heading towards. I have decided to buy a new hard drive and install it.

I did however want to take the time to thank you for all the endless help & time that you have given me! I really do appreciate it all!! All the best to you and yours! And thank you again! :happy: :rockon: :thumbsup:

OK first driver you need is the smbus. Do not attempt to install any other driver till that one is installed first.
Go HERE and expand the chipset entry first. Download and install that driver first. After that reboot and then repeat the progress to get the other drivers downloaded and install. Once all the other drivers are installed then reboot and check the device manager then. Let me know what yellow exclamation marks are still showing.

OK here is where it is going to get tricky.
Network 9 choices here to go through
Communications there looks to be 19 choices
Display luckily only one to get here.


Remember to reboot after each one is installed and check the device manager. Don't worry if one of the choices don't work as it will not affect the system. It will only add another driver to your system.

This is what I still need drivers for.
Is there a way to tell the exact driver download I need without downloading a ton of them?

Ethernet is the network driver. You can try right clicking on the entry and then go to properties. There should be a device tab where you will find a device id number. Do a search for that id number on Google and it should give you the device manufacturer.
