On trying to add an extra hdd, via a mobile rack, the screen went wild, and i switched off. On restarting the com1 and com2 ports were reversed and reloading win98 SE and checking the bios could not change anything. The CPU is an Athlon1.1Gb and the motherboard a Trancend.The main hdd is 20Gb Western and I attempted to add a Quantum 8.4Gb Fireball. Incidentally, on trying to use a PS/2 Microsoft intellimouse 1.1A, the system locked up, although the serial mouse and modem work OK. Any suggestions?.
