[TechAssist] Re: Question about computer

Hello Clint.
The mother board is china made. WINBOND    , VIA chipset.
The detail of IDE controller has ! yellow said error code 10 ,
"this device is not present, or not working properly,or does not have
all drivers installed. Try upgrading device driver for this device."
I do not know what to do from here. I have standard cd . and win98 is
installed from
this cd drive.does machine need driver if cd drive is standard.?
