Hi.. Im having a problem with my hard drive i think, when i boot up it stays on the windows xp loading screen for roughly 2 mins, and when it does boot up, i get the add new hardware box come up asking me to install SCSI/RAID host controller, ive tried clicking next next finish etc, but it cant find anything to install it... my computer has been running slow since ive had this come up, funnily enough it was roughly the same time i installed a new graphics card... its a Radeon 128mb 9600 series, ive also installed a wireless card and a soundblaster live sound card since, i dont know whether or not its anything to do with the new hardware, but i just thought it might be the problem...

Ive looked just about everywhere for the SCSI/RAID Host Controller, but i cant find it anywhere, including the microsoft site.

any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

My satellite internet is running very slow today. If I call Hughes they'll tell me the weather must be bad somewhere :rolleyes: . Beautiful day here but probably bad in India where Tech Support is. So if I suddenly disappear that will be the reason.

What are your system specs?

Is this your MB? Looks like an IDE only board. Don't know why it would be finding that controller. Any SCSI/RAID add in cards?

Probably, yes, but there is no need to go so extreme so early on, unless you really have nothing of value on the system and you don't mind spending an hour or so doing it! Go to device manager by typing "devmgmt.msc" in RUN. Check under drives, what is showing up?

the easier way is to just put the windows xp pro sp2 install cd in, and then boot from there.
before the installation starts it says to press F6 or somthin to install scsi/raid controllers
