BIOS intermittently loses CDROM

I have an OEM PC with a BIOS ID of 03/15/2005-601-686A-6A6LIB09C-00. If the PC reboots in XP, it intermittently loses the CDROM in the bios. The PC randomly reboots when using Internet Explorer 6, or the mouse will stop working (hangs). I replaced the bios and reinstalled XP Home, but the problem still remains. What is my problem?

Hi, first check that your RAM chips are seated firmly, then check the CPU fan for dust, then if you still have the problem try disconnecting the on/off switch wires that run from the case to the board, bridge the two pin out to mstart the computer and see if problem still exists. The final test I can offer is the power supply, If you can use a multimeter and test the voltage. Yellow =12v red=5v black=ground. If you get a variance of more than 2v replace the unit. Another way is to try a diferent power supply. Regards mistyman

I want to boot from cd to change windows from xp to 98


enter the bios set up on start up. Go to boot sequence, change 1st option to cdrom instead of main drive. Save and exit. Let it boot up, put 98 disk in cdrom. Shut down, reboot and win 98 installation will begin asking you to over write existing ops sys. Choose yes and the install should be a breeze after this. Once xp is installed, dont forget to return to the bios and change back your boot sequence to hard drive as primary /master.

My computer is frozen no matter what I do to it. I believe it has viruses on it. How can I reset the computer and wipe out everything on it.


Hi,
you,ll have to replace the hard-drive with a new unit.
and remove the cmos battery from the motherboard for 10-15 seconds. This will reset the Bios to it,s default settings.
If you are unsure or unable to do this, mail me for further advice/help.
