I just heard about a update that might have corrupted my computer! I was told this update came out about 3 months ago that windows sent out that was if installed might cause alot of issues, and thats when my motherboard would not allow me to load my OS. Well when i went into the bios it wouldnt detect the hardrive was their so i tryed using a ide hardrive becuase my other one was sata just incase the sata port or the sata hardrive was no longer working but with the IDE hardrive it did the same thing. I was going to reinstall the OS but when i tryed using the CD rom it was indicating that it was working with the lights but upon trying to access the CD rom through startup it kept giving me a error indicating that i could not perform that action. Not allowing me to accesss the cd rom well i tried it with 3 different cd roms and none of them worked. Im thinking about buying a converter that allows me to use the CD rom via usb to see if that works but if you can tell me if you think its not going to work so i dont waste my time or money and it would be very helpfull..

but if anyone knows about this update or has the same issue please let me know! I loved that PC and i was so upset that i lost it

It did not happen to me and there was no update which I have heard about it as well. Can you show me some news source claiming the same.

Nope. Hearing this for the first time. If this is true, there might be some other update too to solve this issue.

it would solve the issue if it didnt corrupt my motherboards chip sets, the light on my cd drive indicates that the cd rom is ok the bios says its ok but if i try to boot from it it wont boot so i cant reinstall (ive tried useing the OS, and the nvidia rollback drive nothing) ive tried 3 different cd drives the floopy says its ok in the bios but i cant boot from it eaither, when i look in the bios it doesnt detect the hardrive at all and when i try to boot from normal startup it wont go past the windows logo, i cant reinstall i cant access the desktop safe mode doesnt work nothing works. I was told by my friend taht the exact same thing happend to him but he was able to solve it because it didnt corrept his cd port,..... And before i installed the windows update their was no problems at all with any of theise devices. I let the computer the night before the pc crashed i let it install all the new updates about 3 months ago and when i tryed to pull up my system the computer did all of what i just indicarted

Can you post any information you have related to that update.

It might be virus that has infected the bios as well.

If you are using the same machine that is affected with this problem and if it was a windows update, you can get that update info from add/remove programs.
