I`m not an expert so please treat me gently!!
I switch on it starts and the screen says
"Checking NVRAM" and underneath it updates to
"131072 KB OK".
It then says "WAIT".
After several second , I hear the hard disk "whirr" for a second , then many seconds later , the screen says
"Insert BOOT diskette in A"
I`m assuming that the problem is in the BIOS so I`ve changed the backup battery.
This appeared to cure the problem for a couple of days , but the problem has now returned (I`ve changed the battery again but it`s still failing)
I`ve checked for loose leads to the HD etc. but all appears OK
Has anyone any suggestions what I can do next?
It eventually started up and so here I am trying to discover what to do.
A couple of ideas ??
Can the BIOS settings be checked once it`s up and running?
Is there any software that can diagnose the problem?
I`m running WIN 98 with AMD 500 processor
Help ! ...please
