hooked up a external storage device .. everything was fine drive e dvd rw designation. rebooted with storage deviced hooked up . and reloaded some xp items .. then it switch desigations with my built in drive . so now the built in comes up as the dvd rw drive . even when i delete the software and remove the drive whenever it sees the built in drive it shows up as the external automatically ..
You don't need to use a utility, just press F2 when the Dell logo shows up and it should enter setup, then rotate over to the drives section. If your PC is a Dell they usually have a free 3.5 inch bay were you can install a second hard drive. The unknown is a problem can you go over to maintenance section and tell it to reset to factory settings?
ok ill give it a shot.. i was having problems with the computer that is why i bought a external to get the files off before i tried to reload xp or reformat .. .. wanted to get the few important files i have on it off of it .. the rewrite that is in the machine never would write .. lucky to get it to get info off a disc ..
