Having played/worked with computers, Sonar and Missile, Atari, IBM Compatable etc. from 1958 I could not accept this.
A long time ago I had listed all the settings in every screen in setup, for this computer, I am so glad I did.
I pressed delete during booting and entered setup, I then checked all these setting and altered any which had changed. After many hours of experimenting I found that if I Disabled Boot up floppy seek, the computer would boot up and I could use most things on drives C & D.
I now have a three problems.
The floppy drive does not work.
The scanner drivers are missing, and I cannot reload because they are a 3.5" disk, and no floppy drive.
I cannot get onto the internet (Dial Up) It would seem because there is no IRQ assigned to the modem according to device manager. I have tried deleting it and windows finds it on start up but assigns memory but no IRQ and says it is working properly. IE and Outlook express cannot find it.
Any help or suggestions gratefully received, thank you.
