Dell Insprion 1100 issues.
hey we've got this laptop at work that has some issues. first off, we did a complete format of the hdd, its also a new hdd for the laptop, and we did a format and installed xp home on it. when it boots up it says which os would you like to boot to and it gives the option of xp home or media center. also when i went to reinstall thinking someone didn't do a complete format on it, media center didn't show up as a recognized os on the windows install screen when it looks for os's to repair.
secondly the ethernet drivers worked on a first install of xp, then i reinstalled xp and the ethernet drivers don't work, so I went ahead and ran a full diag on it, and the only thing that failed on the diag test was a keyboard controller test. could this be part of a bigger problem?
