Please help me!!!
Recently, while mucking about in linux, i decided to abort an instalation of Suse 9.2. I quit it and everything, and shut down the computer.:mad: Big mistake. Now the computer doesn't start. I need to install windows XP onto it.
however, when you start the system, there is no display, and I get a beep error code, which consistes of:
where the number is the number of beeps and - indicates a pause.
First i tried to boot from the hd on another pc. it loaded up centOS, my previous OS half and half, some errors along the way.
I then loaded up Win Xp and i formatted the hd using paragon, into two equal sized ntfs partitions.
putting the hd back in the original machine still failed to work. I then reset the CMOS by shorting the jumper. Still not working.
All my cards/rams/drives are in properly and because there is only the 1 hd it has its master drive jumper set.
It is really important that i get win xp going again because i need to get my webserver up and running, which i was first doing on win, then switched to linux, and now nothing works at all!!!!!
I am not very experienced with the innards of a pc, although i could possibly build one on my own.
I am experienced with win, but not linux!!
I'd be really greatful if somewone could help me.
My system specs are:
Pheonix BIOS (i think!!)
AMD Anthlon (yes i know... far to slow & rubbish for anything..)
Not sure about gfx but there is one
not sure about make of moby
Soundblaster sound cd
Usb 2 expansion card
128 mb sdram
2 x 256 mb ram
Thanks so much for your time everyone!!
