Default Re: computer is not reconising hard drive

well if it installed on your second harddrive thats set to slave so i doubt the slave can use ur master harddrive as a slave when its not lol.. so you gota swich the jumpers OR it can be that you have to format both drives to xp pro.. (i dont mean install it on both) u need to format the other one so windows xp can recognize it... OR what brand is your harddrive.. most harddrive companys like western digital have a utility that will do it for you with a coiple easy clicks while running windows..

No Wireless INTERNET, you might need to reinstall your drivers of you modem or router, check if you have any yellows in device manager or goto your network connections and look in there for your modem, if its there right click on it and select properties and see what it says in there.
