U probly have a card reader installed? Reinstall your o/s but make sure you disconnect the card reader. Everything should work fine after that. Good luck

I poked around a bit and found this link

Can I reassign my drive letters? - Ask Leo!

It helped me reassign my G to now be a D drive but no luck on the C drive so far.

ok well after more research I found out theres no way to change unless I reinstall my OS... well I got to thinking and I just changed my 2nd partition to C drive lol... so now I have a C drive and a F drive, and now my problem is solved just partition your drives up more on your C drive like I did if you have this problem.

sorry if I wasted forum space maybe this will help somone else.
