<_<
When I turn on the Puter, i get a black screen with a flashing cursor in the upper left hand corner, <f10=setup><f12=network system boot>.
When i hit F10, nothing happens, i cant type at the cursor and the A Drive is running. after a while the "working Light stops flashing but the A drive keeps going."
There is nothing in the A drive.
Ive replaced the Bios Battery.
and it wont read the CD to restore or reformat.
any ideas, comments, or Solution?

hmmm, have you tried to clear your bios? also can you get into your computer with safe mode- tapping F8 at startup and you will get some options after it loaded your bios

If you press F10 do you get the BIOS setup screen? If so, does it recognize you hard drive?

Problem solved!
It may have stared out as a low battery, but the keyboard must have gotten fried.
I changed the key board and then I was able to hit F10. all reset and so far it works fine. :D
thank you, to those who tried to help. :o
It was driving me nuts trying to figure out. :P :D <_<
sometimes its the simple things we overlook. :D
