View Full Version : Conflicts?

My 'system' icon in control panel shows 2x exclamation points over 'primary & secondary ultra ata controllers'in device manager. When checking their properties, it is noted my 'c drive' is in - 'ms dos compatibility mode file system', & that this mode is reducing overall system performance. Nortons antivirus has just died because of a lost dll. file & now will not work... , & finally my Iomega Ditto 3200 tape drive doesn't function as hardware even though the s/ware is trying to do its thing...(This is not life as we know it Jim!)
I would be gratful for solutions other than reformatting & starting over ,although in saying that, I hope its not my only solution...

Try this to fix the problem with Primary and Secondary controllers:

Run 'regedit' and search for 'noide' and delete it if it finds it.

Don't forget to backup the registry first!

Hi Chris,
Thanks for your response...however there was no 'noide' in regedit. Any other thoughts?
