Destructive recovery


It depends upon what virus it had? Some will attack the boot sector. If it was mine, and I am not sure what virus it had, I would do a complete reinstall. Starting with deleting the partition of the heard drive, the creating the partition and format the drive install the OS and drivers. The before placing and programs or games on the drive, get a good anti-virus and malware detector program on it.

I have lost my Motherboard Drivers CD


Hi,
Simply go to the motherboard manufacturer's web site. They usually will have them for downloading. If your LAN does not work to get you there, ask a friend to download them for you and put them on a CD or USB Flash Drive. Hank

Drivers lost for the disc drive. error mssg. in


This is probably something caused by a virus and I suggest to reinstall teh operation system ..This will take care of the disk drivers as well ..cause usually the disk drivers are installed with the operation system,..
I think this is an error caused by a virus that attacks the optical drive driver and makes it disappear ..reinstalling the OS from a boot-able disk will fix it ..may sure you save all drivers from the support site before ..so that you will have at least the LAN driver to install and be able to connect after this..
if it refers to the raid drivers or so ..but still works ..eitehr disable teh raid in bios ..or reinstall them all

Best practices after nasty virus attacks that leaves your system unstable or working less than normal calls for a reinstall. My advice to you is backup any files you want to keep on a usb drive and VIRUS SCAN THE DRIVE. Once you are 100% sure that your files are backed up and virus free gather your OS install media and CD Keys then reinstall. I can not stress enough to be 110% sure your back up files are clean or you will reinfect your new OS install. With well over 12 years of experiences fighting viruses this is just the way to go rather than spending days or weeks of hair pulling trying to restore a damaged OS until this is a mission critical system for a customer.

My hdd does not get detected


I too had a similar problem with my laptop. My laptop had a virus attack and somehow I managed to remove all the viruses. However there was one persistent problem which was while booting, My documents used to open automatically. Hence I wanted to repair the Windows XP SP2 and so I went to BIOS and changed the settings to boot from CDROM. While booting the installation CD from CDROM, suddenly I get a message: Hard disk not found! This was nightmare. Then I got this solution:
My laptop was new and the HDD was connected to motherboard with SATA, and we need SATA drivers before installing OS. In the likely event of not getting this driver, we could still solve this problem by confusing the computer. Go to BIOS settings and change the SATA to IDE or any other. Then restart the computer. The HDD now can be seen and you can repair or reinstall the Windows XP SP2.
