Clean install not done by me, no. That's why I've said I returned it to factory settings .. not reformatted.

When we first got the computer my husband made recovery disks; there are four of them. Does that sound right? I have no idea how to use them, and would prefer not to, as I suspect I'd fluff it up (I think evidence points to my ability to do this).

Oooo ... not done that no James. I'll bookmark it and try it in the morning. That way if it doesn't work I can do the whole reinstall thing afterwards. Thank you

Sorry for the delay in updating .. I couldn't remember my username lol.

Good news! The problem (for which I posted originally) is sorted out! I had a hunch that it was because when I returned C: to factory settings I had given the computer a different name. And indeed, when I changed it back again, no problem with the D drive anymore.

Just to sort out the rest of the problems now

Thanks for all of your help guys.
