Problem 1 - okay well heres my problem...today my sister told me her pc was lagging bad and her internet stopped working. So what i did was try to do some spyware scans and stuff but it just lagged forever.
So one of my brilliant ideas was to take out her hard drive and insert it in to mine...why you ask..be casue he pc only has a 15 gig HD and 96MB of ram..bad i know..plus windows XP but my sister didnt mind it..just used it for AIM...
So i took it out and hooked it up to my dell..tryed booting it and i recieved a message..."Operating System Not Found" So i thought thats not good.. But when i inserted it back into her pc it said the same thing..** Also BIOS Will not recongize wether its a slave drive or master..So what can i do to atleast be able to still use it..not worried about losing her files ECT
Problem 2 - next i remembered that i had a 10 gig HD with Windows 98 se so i tryed booting from that HD it will come to the loading screen but after that when the desktop is suppose to come up theres just a little dash that blinks in the top left corner..
Tryed resetting the CMOS battery i tihnk its called
But im stuck and would like to really save either hard drive..low on cash for a new one..any way to do a fresh install of 98..
i tryed to reinstall win98 but it said theres not enought space..how can i cler the HD to start from scratch..
Sorry for the lenght..also if you need more info let me know
Thanks your pc friend steve
