Re: Ethernet not being recognized
Hey guys. Been busy, and trying to mess around with the various problems I'm having.
I never ran CPU-Z and can't now anyway because I used a friends computer to re-format the hard drive. It's clean.
Problem 1: The computer only seems to turn on the display at random. Unplugging everything, resetting the CMOS, messing with the power, all do absolutely nothing. Letting it sit for a day and plugging it back in works fine. After a day of sitting around it uses the display like it was never a problem and restarting it causes no problems either. - nevermind. It just randomly stops working whenever it feels like it but doesn't start working again. There have to be some wrong connections somewhere or something is bridged.
Problem 2: BOOTMGR is missing. I can't boot from CD because this is all that happens with ANY of the three genuine windows discs I have. Never had the problem before we used Vista to reformat the drive. All I can find is fixing it in the operating system, well I don't have one so that's out. No longer goes through diagnostics, can't get into the BIOS either (F12). Starts up with the motherboard screen, then goes straight to verifying DMI pool data... BOOTMGR is missing
Beginning to think this is a lost cause.
