My problem is that the pc won't boot up,I keep getting the on screen message frequency out of range,it does'nt load windows,and the hard disk light is always on,I can't get into the bios. The pc is running wndows xp home edition,prior to the above problem I did notice that the date and time were'nt correct,and probably the cmos battery is faulty,the pc was running prefectly until I noticed the date/time problem,I did replace the battery but this did'nt make any difference. My packard bell pc is quite old,anyone know how I can cure this problem,Thank you
Try a different monitor first, if you have access to one, cwham. A standalone graphics card will probably disable the onboard graphics chip when you install it, if not, you can disable the onboard chip, in device manager, if it cures the problem.
