Hard Drive & Floppy Drive
When I got this computer it would boot up normally but it was infected With XP Antivirus 2008, which disabled many control panel, start menu Functions. This system is WinXP Pro.
I put a start-up disk in the floppy but it wouldnít boot. I did manage to Boot from the XP install disk and run the repair function, but it didnít Help. I checked BIOS settings and made sure the floppy was the first boot device, it still wouldnít boot from the floppy so I replaced it. Didnít help so I replaced the floppy cable, still no help.
I removed power from the hard drive hoping to be able to boot from the Floppy, but it still didnít work. I plugged the hard drive back in and tried To reboot normally but it couldnít find the hard driveÖ replaced the ide Cable, that didnít work either. Checking the BIOS the hard drive wasnít
Listed in the boot devices. I reset the bios but that didnít help either.
I checked the power supply and all voltages were present except the +3.3 Volts for the P-4 connector.
Any idea what could have caused this or a way to fix it?
