heres one for you guys
Well ok guys, at my college we have acomputer repair shop where people bring in their computers and we fix them for free. well i got my first machine today, and well what can i say, its VERY sick. lol
ok, lets get to it, i beleive that it is the CMOS settings or the board.
wel, it wont boot, and i can not get inot hte bios, so from what i can gatheris this as the specs:
10 gig hdd
pci vid card
and two sticks of pc100 ram, cant tell what the mem capacity on them are.
currently thats all we have installed, and well, i am still gettingthe eror.
I boot, and it says cmos chekcsum error, so thats fine, but, it then tels me to insert system disk, which i do, and then when it boots with it and the win98 menu pops up to start with cdrom, without cdrom, etc., i cant move to select something, so it just goes ahead, without selecting one somehow, and says it cant find the system files on the disk, and leaves me at a prompt. when i try to run fdisk, it says there is no fixed disk present, so i canhged the disk, the ide cable and same thing.
I reset the bios, removed the battery and replaced it, and well changed ram and everything.
mot of the time i geta beep error that has two beeps, but they are realy deep beeps, and soundlike "booooo baaaaaaa" in a deep tone, lol
But ya, im thinking that either the cmos is the error, or the board is fried.
well tell me what you think guys!
