Question about Compaq Armada E500 Notebook
During the boot up process, I get the following message: Fixed Disk Parameter Table or B105 Error System Halted. I am running Ms xp. I tried using F8.
Fixed disc is refering to your hardrive and the fact that it has been unable to read a bad sector on your hard drive, that sector probably being where the boot.ini file resides. You will have to get the drive checked out, by means of an 2.5" ide to usb powered connector, which will connect to another pc's usb port to enable you to perform a disk check and a repair if possible of the bad sectors, or take to a local repairer where they should have the required adapters.
