    You'll have to reinstall the os (windows assuming) and drivers and make sure here computer is compatible (unless you clone the drive) , also give us the make and model of the computer (brand and model number) and we will see what we can do...


    Best of Luck... :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:
