If your system will boot with the install CD in place, but not without it, it sounds to me like your hard disk partition is simply not set as active.

Boot DOS, from a CD or floppy. You can get a dos boot disk or CD image from

Once DOS is up, run FDISK. Set your Windows partiton as active. Then to reboot.

I think you'll be fine.

Hi You need to make sure that your boot sequence sets to boot from hard drive first. Also, make sure that the hard drive sequence has the hard drive enabled. If this does not work, then let me know so I can give another suggestion.

    Hello again,
    This means you will have to get your hard drive physically tested. It might be faulty and need to replace. Have you tried another hard drive in it to see if the PC recognizes it? If it does then the hard drive you are using currently might really be faulty.
    It will only be verified with a hard drive test.

You have to make sure that the memory you put on each socket is a DDR266/333/400 memory. The max capacity of your motherboard is up to 4GB, meaning 1GB of each socket.

Problem in viewing Videos

The problem could be the memory. The video file is using up all the system resources. Maybe upgrading to 1gb of ram will help.
