hi everyonehave an IBM laptop which now only boot to the bio sys. tried to put the HDD drive first then try boot from a CD but always go to the bio,ohmade sure the HDD is sat secure in it's bay please advice as I'am going nut.
Could be that the hard disk is dead.Can you get into the BIOS and tell it to boot first from CD? If you have a bootable CD, what happens?
yes tried this option with no vail
Should not boot direct to BIOS, what key to enter setup? perhaps the key is stuck.
sorry I forgot to mention the I have error message stating :2020 ide secondry chanel master drive error
Error messsage is what is directing you to BIOS.HDD are usually on primary master try removing CD drive (if removable)or in BIOS (as temp measure) diasble secondary IDE channel
I have connected the drive but even my other laptop did not recognise it (i can hear the drive wizzing)
You hard drive has dieda replacemant hard drive should solve the problem.
Ongoing problem from Feb 06 to Dec 07?What happened in between?
thank you all, for all the help you gave me
