After a 2gig memory upgrade, bios seems to be corrupted. The system does recognize the added memory. The boot sequence initially didn't show the hard drive as an option. IDE CDROM is shown as an option, however, system won't boot from IDE. The bios is A01. I know that this version is much older than it should be, however, I can't upgrade without a boot device. I removed the on-board battery and that didn't help either. Any suggestions?

this is common, if your place was cold its possible that something has died when turning on again, you could try and pull out ram in an order to see if one has failed, get the memtest download and make a boot disk to test the ram has not become faulty, test each stick alone, Hiren boot disk has all the good stuff for testing, its a free tecky tool for engineers.
When you inter the bios open the memory in the bios be sure to save on exit hope this helps

Just go into the bios and insert the correct parameters. you shut it off before it could save the settings. Or hit fi on boot and it should take you into the bios and you cand sort it out in there. If you want an easy way, just do a system restore. Start,Programs, accesorys, system tools, system restore, just go back a day or two before you had that issue, and you should be good to go, good luck
It hangs there probably becuase one or more of the drives are dead or are almost there. Check and see the lights on the drives are falshing funny or too long or are yellow. If you find one of them that are that way, pull it out and then reboot.
