Help guys! I've got a basket case on my hands (besides myself). It's an Athlon system with SiS chipset that is showing 2 floppy drives (only one in system) and no CD drive. BIOS is detecting them properly. Any ideas?

Do they show up in device manager?

If they do remove remove them and reboot

See how this goes for you.

That's what is strange - they don't even show up in Device Manager. I may have to do a reinstall(groan). Gonna try to update the drivers first though.

Update: I ran regedit and deleted the "enum" key to force a redetect of hardware. Still no go.

Cleaned it out - no cd drive there in safe mode either.

Final update...

Finally got rid of the problem by reinstalling Windows. I guess something was too buggered for a Device Manager purge to get rid of it. Thanks to all who helped!

Ah there is nothing like a clean install.

A clean machine is a happy machine say I...:D
