If it's in the BIOS but not in Disk Management I'd start by installing the drivers and let them reinstall on a reboot. threefeetunder August 13, 2007 11:14:03 AM thanks G for your input. I did happen to figure it out. there was a code 31 in Device Manager. I had to delete two keys in the registry. Everythings fine now, again, thanks for the input... Can't find your answer ? Ask !
