CD Rom and hard disk problems
I just built a new PC (for the first time which why this is probably happening) and im having the following problems:
Windows 95 says the hard disk is running in MS DOS mode because of something missing but the hard drive works fine its just very slow in this mode. Also in my control panel in device manager under hard disks it shows problems with primary and secondary IDE but no problem with dual IDE and reports the dual IDE as the parent, it says the problem is a driver missing or its not working. Seems that would make sence with the dual IDE.
Also my CD ROM wont work, it gets power and the cables are plugged in right i reinstalled the driver several times but when i try to use the CD ROM drive it doesnt recognize it at all. So i cant install my video driver or anything yet. There was also something about a PCI bridge i know nothing about that and when it asked i didnt install a driver for it. Could that have something to do with it?
