Compaq S6700NX Desktop Comp

by iluv60s / September 17, 2004 12:02 AM PDT

I was working on this desktop for a friend, he had several virus' (which I removed). He had a problem with an music maker app, when you run it, it says it cant find an avi file on the cdrom, but it's there. I thought the virus was the cause, but apparently not as the same thing happened after I removed them.
The system then seemed to be unstable (couldn't create an xp restore point, it would hang up trying). So I did a Compaq destructive restore and the system went back to normal operation.

My real question is why does this comp show 2 processors in device manager? (Intel 2.8 hyperthreading processors). This has to be a low end comp as it has onboard video & audio. Also in device manager in the IDE controllers there are 2 ata controllers, 2 Primary ide channels & 2 Secondary ide channels listed. My comp only has 1 each of the above??? I uninstalled 1 of the ata controllers & a primary & secondary Ide channel disappeared along with it. However, when I rebooted, all of the above reappeared via the found new hardware thingy....

Thanks Bob. Is there any reason there are 2 primary & 2 secondary ide controllers listed (along with 2 ata controllers)?? Theres only 1 hard drive & 2 cdrom drives.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
