ok remember a while ago when i made that post about custom computers?

well mine is messed up and i don't know what the hell is wrong with it, neither of the cd drives will read, or the usb ports, or the audio device i have installed in it

when i open up my computer on it i can't even see the drives all i see is the floppy, windows installer won't load them /it says they may be corrupt

right click on "My Computer" > Properties.

Click the "Hardware" tab at the top.

Click the button that says "Device Manager".

Do you see any listings with a Rex "X" or a yellow "?"" attached to them?

I vote for mobo drivers too. Use the disk that came with the mobo, or go to the vendor site.

If they still don't work (has happened to me before), my cure all for windows is back up files, format, and install the mobo drivers right after you finish the windows install. make sure all your hardware is recognized and install drivers one by one for each peripheral.

If you do format, I'd recommend installing windows with just the basics, like one cd or dvd drive, the hard drive(s), and the video card in the case. Then add the other things one by one once the basics are up and running (and updated fully)

ok so it doesn't even recognize the floppy drives, cd-rom and whatever?

You need to boot your PC, and go see in the BIOS if it even sees them at all.
(Usually pressing del, or alt when booting)

If the BIOS doesn't see them either it's effed.
If it does, you might want to try booting from the windows CD, and repair, or re-install.
