Hi, A couple of days ago I turened an old PC on, which I wanted to get going again. It had not been on for a few years as it was playing up. I have Windows 98 on the computer and I want to put a version of 2000 I have spare onto it. I have changed CD Drive to load from first in the BIOS, but when it starts up it says "boot from CD" and then eventually opens up windows 98. I have tested the cd on other computers and it works fine. I have also tried other OS such as XP and Windows ME, all of these I try do the same as the 2000 cd.
Disconnect all the pci cards except the graphic card. with the power supply switched off and disconnected from the compter, check that all the cables are firmly fitted and the graphic card is seated correctly, before attempting a restart.
Ok, I have found the cause of the problem of it not booting properly - it was the cd drive i put into it, so a few cd rom drives down the road and now it will at least boot up. I have tried the boot disk, but all it does now is either stop and read the floppy for a seccond and continued loadiong windoes 98 or reads the floppy and says flooppy disk failre.
Any more sergestions please?
