Hi and Welcome to the forum

Plz explain what you did. Did you used the Recovery cd from your manufacturer to restore the pc back to manufacturer state?

yes the pc was rstored to factory settings without problems.....but them my pc stopped recognising anything i tried to install (hardware).......a friend of ours managed to install my external hard drive but only because he knew what he was doing.....it worked fine for a few weeks but now i can't recognise it again (I get an error message an important installation file is missing maybe because desinged for windows95 or higher.....but i'm running XP !!!)...........
he thinks something has happened and someone has possible wiped my hard drive.......

The mobo drivers should have been installed when using the Recovery cd. You could however check in the Device Manager to see if you have any yellow questioin marks or exclamation points. ( right click My Computer/ click properties)

You may want to set th BIOS settings back to default to see if this helps. Tap the Del key or F1 key at boot. You need to enter Setup. Once in ther look for the key to set the settings to default. Most times its a F key combination

my freecom classic HD has a yellow exclamation mark......tried installing driver from freecom websire but get same error message.........

actual error read: The driver installation file for this device is missing a necessary entry. This may be that the INF was written for windows 95 or later....

A yellow exclamation point usually means there is an IRQ conflict.
Have you tried right clicking on the drive and selecting remove and rebooting to see if it windows will reinstall it?
