I have an old pc, It is a shop brought one, IBM Model: 6277530 Version: NHKT26AFR, Series: 558124W, purchased in 1998.

It was formatted and I cannot find the recovery or original disks. I have tried to load windows 98 and it refuses to load. After searching the web, it could be because it has a “locked BIOS”. I cannot get it to boot from D drive. I have looked at the IBM site and just do not understand it. What can I do apart from buying a new pc? (which I cannot afford)
:tazz: I am not computer literate.

You might try this to unlock the BIOS. Unplug the computer, take out the CMOS battery for about five minutes, put it back, plug it back in and boot up. That should remove any passwords. If you look real hard you may be able to find a manual and other things like drivers for it at the IBM site.
