Forgive the "this and that" sound to this question but its second hand.....
A hard drive was taken out of an old computer (old guts) and put into a new computer (new and faster guts!) and now this computer will not come out of safe mode. All old drivers were removed from device manager, an attempt made to put all new drivers in. Worked good until shut down and restarted.
Apparently there is a "mode" problem with the drive. Says something about MS DOS, that it is in this "mode" so that it can run. Nothing wrong in device manager, how does one change the "mode" that a drive is in.
I hope I've explained that correctly, error message or computer NOT in front of me.
