Question about Toshiba Libretto 50CT Notebook
I accidentally changed the BIOS IDE setting for my Libretto 50CT hard drive from enhanced to regular. Now it won't boot up - I/O error. How can I boot the PC into the BIOS to change back? My floppy drive does not work, so I can't use the Companion diskette.
To enter the BIOS during start-up press the ESC-key while switching power on
hope this helps :0)
