This machine suddenly refuses to boot from Cd.or Floppy. Tried Bios and selecting boot order via f12. Nothing works. Can anyone help? Don. Also tried sys restore rollback-no good. On win xp.

Scared to try this. Only time I ever tried it crashed the comp. and cost a lot to get it fixed.Don

Have you tried restoring the defaults in your BIOS? This should be tried before resorting to a flash!

Have you set the option in your BIOS? The first boot device? Its usually in the "advanced __something__" section if your using Award BIOS.
