yea after chk disk didn't work i gave up and just formatted the damn thing. BTW I REALLY HATE DELL's Driver downloads. OMG They mass produce these laptops and they don't even have their own driver page. They have a generic driver page that has like 8 different network drivers to pick from... I did my detective work in the BIOS but still. There are 3 devices i couldn't figure what the hell they were because dell is retarded, never gonna buy from them ever ever haha. Glad it wasn't my laptop. Anyways i got all the components working, audio, network, wireless, guess those 3 devices weren't very useful.
