Hi all. I have 2 hd of 40gb each.On the master C: drive I had win98 on one partition. On the second hd I had 3 partitions all formatted with one having data on it, the rest are blank. I was installing xp onto the second drive but eveything froze. I left it for about 30 min but the computer was doing nothing so I switched off and on again. My big problem is that now my pc is dead. When I press the power button the green power light comes on the hd light comes on and both stay on constantly. The dvd light comes on and it searches, it but I had changed the bios to boot from cd. This is all that happens it does not boot at all, dead as a dodo. Even if I could get it to boot that would be a start. I can not get into bios setup, the monitor does not come on and it does not check the floppy. HELP PLEASE. I am about to go to work but some helpful posts would be great and i will be on again tonight.
Ah forgot to say, don't forget to change the jumpers on the HDD's. If you need data off so you can fully reformat stick the drive as a slave in a friends PC and get the data onto CDR. Then Re-install from scratch.
