this computer was working fine for 2 yrs (ive formatted a couple of times but my last format was probably 5 months ago) and out of the blue this started happening so i chcked bios
this comp is xp pro btw
bios doesnt detect my hard drives in ide primary/secondary
i have two hard drives,
what comes up there in those ide primary slot in bios instead is, my cdr and dvd drives..
my computer doesnt go to the desktop screen,
after boot it will load to the screen where you type your password
and after i hit enter,
it just sticks there with the password window gone, and just the background stuck there forever
i tried formatting but my cd /dvd drive doesnt read my CD.. even though my dvd drive is boot priority one
and ive tried replugging the harddrives..
i have 2 hard drives..
also tried installing vista from bootup, it worked, but then during installation there was an error with a corrupt file???
cheers for any help at all
