The laptop hard drive crashed. Installed new hard drive and reinstalled the XP Home OS. On startup I press F2 which opens the BIOS Setup screen. The screen is inactive, I can't change anything. It shows the correct time, processor, cpu speed, system memory, etc., but NOT primary hard drive. The computer works fine, but I would like to go in, navigate from page to page, and look at the settings. In a previous thread the member was advised to remove the battery for a while and retry. My battery is dead, because I don't use it, but I tried it anyway. I still have the same problem. Thanks in advance for any help on this.
