But this is very frustrating. I have an older Dell system (maybe 8 or 9 years old), that was working fine. I was going to reinstall windows on it about a month or two back. I kept getting an error message that said something like "Standard Mode: Fault outside of MS-DOS Extender." Then a load of numbers that I have no clue what they mean. At first I thought my hard drive was bad. So, when I finally got the time, I went out and got a new one. Turns out, that wasnít the issue. So, I returned the one I bought to the store. And when I went to put my old drive back in, nothing worked. I can hear the computer boot up, but I cant see it on my screen, and it has like 1 or two extra beeps that were never there before. I donít think it'd be the graphics card, because it was working fine with everything else. And Iíve ran out of ideas on what it could be.
So my two questions are:
1) How do i get it to come back up on my screen.
2) When I get that issue resolved, how do I get around that Standard Mode Dos issue?
Please help, Iím staring to look like this Smilie:
