My mums computer is not working. At first It said something like, CMOS time and date not set. But would boot up if Esc was used. Now that I have put a new battery on the circuit board, it gets as far as saying Flopy A: Installed, then does nothing. It will let me get into set up (F1) but I don't know what to do when I am there. I did set the time and date though.
I don,t want to wipe what is in the machine. Any ideas?

There are settings you will like to adjust to speed up things a little:
standard cmos settings
hd settings manualy set to user type LBA mode (not autodetect)
1 quick POST - enabled
2 Boot sequence 1 -c (or hard drive) 2 - a (or floppy)
