I got the pc home and plugged everything back in and started it up, but it didn't boot up quite right. It was something I'd never seen before (not Safe mode). I think I had to press the ESC key to get it to continue. I apologize for not writing things down at the time. I did get it to start up and I was able to log in, but once I logged in I started to get Found New Hardware messages. The first one was for the RAID Controller. I had it search my machine but it didn't find whatever it was looking for. The next Found New Hardware message was for the Ethernet Controller, which it didn't find either.
I'm at a loss as to what to do at this point and I'd like to attempt something/anything myself before I send it back to the friend since it will be weeks before I'd get my machine back again. Any insight/info would be greatly appreciated.
Oh, forgot to include that I'm running XP Professional edition, in case it matters.
