    I would configure the configuration of the bios but when I don't have any signal on my monitor from the computer. If the lights and the fans of the pc are working including the cd and dvd drive the mainboard is fine or am I wrong? Any idea would be great. Thank you for your help.

Can i replace my 330c head unit with the 525c using the same wires antennae etc lowrance

Hope its not to late, before you replace (buy a new one) call Lowrance. I have a 525 and working through some problems and they advised me that they would replace my unit for $200 no questions asked. To answer your question not 100% positive but I did see a recent question where Lowrance lost his unit and sent him the 525 as a replacement and the connections were different. I believe my 525 has a 5 pin system with one notch. Does yours have a external gps module? The 525 does!

Can you recommend the correct external hd to use for this old pc? Thanks a lot.

Anything up to a 1 TB external drive will work fine. You will only have a speed issue as it's USB 1 and not USB 2 unless you put a new USB port card in the machine.

Can I add a hard drive to my old hp pavilion 525c which is still running XP and running well?

Best way to do it if you aren't familiar with the internals of a PC is to use an external drive. If you have a drive aleready you can get an external drive case and put your own hard drive into it in about 5 minutes.

Restart issue

Sounds like your computer constantly loads up some kind of ghost image that restores your PC to a previously set default installation. If you can't figure out what program you have that might cause this (and it's not normal, some kind of software has to be causing it) the only thing left to do is a full format and re-install to get rid of the offending program.
