Okay, so I was browsing around the web the other day. My notebook completely locked up, and I had to hold in the power button for 10 seconds to do a hard shut down. A few hours later, I go to turn it on and I get this message after seeing the Compaq logo for about 5 minutes, along with three loud beeps.
Fixed Disk Parameter Table or BIOS Error
So, I pop in my Windows XP Installation CD, trying to reinstall Windows, and I get the same thing, Compaq logo, Three beeps, then the error message.
So next I pop in Knoppix STD. Same thing, I can't do anything at all with my system. Anybody know what is going on and how I can fix it? Thanks!
