I'm having a problem with my AMD Duron computer. Here's the problem:

I start up my windows 2000 and I can't explore/browse the hard drive. (There is one hard drive with two partitions, neither is browsable)

I thought I might be able to look at the disk in the disk manager through the Computer Management window, but when I click on the Disk Management I get a gray screen with "Connecting to Logical Disk manager Service..." and nothing else happens.

I then tried to restart the "Logical Disk Manager" service, but it fails to restart the service.


This is a fresh install and I formated the hard drive prior to installing the windows 2000.

Oh yeah. I do not have the APC program installed, as I've seen on the web, which can cause simillar problems.

I thought I've seen something simillar to this in XP, and there was some registry edit that allowed full compatibility for an AMD CPU, is there something like that fix for 2000?

Any other suggestions?

Please list all the components of the system. In particular, the motherboard.

How is the hard drive and optical drives connected to the motherboard?

Some motherboards suffer from "bad caps". Have a close look at the capacitors on the board and check for signs of swelling or leaking.
