Question about Apple Laptop Floppy Drive (661-1651) Internal Floppy Drive
We have an AMS Soundpro - SPP 40483 - laptop - got it at a yard sale - something to goof and learn on - it constantly boots to MS Dos - can we get into the bios and change the boot sequence - also the floppy spins then seems to get stuck and can't continue to spin - any thoughts would be greatly appreciated - the laptop does not appear to be user friendly as far as dismantling it
This sound like fun. To get to the bios the common practice is to hold down the [Delete] key as soon as you turn it on. If it constantly boots to doss, that is likely the operating system. To explore what else is there, at the dos prompt, type in "dir" and press [Enter]. You should get a list of folders and files. If the dos prompt is A:> then you may have only a floppy drive. To check for a hard drive, type "C:" at the dos prompt. If it says not available, then you have only floppy. If the dos prompt changes to 'C:>" the you have a hard drive.
As far as dismantleing it is concerned, remove any screws in the bottom. Press you finger against any labes on the bottom and feel aroud for hidden screws. The plastic case also snaps together. Tying to unsnap it usually snaps pieces off. That is as far as i can help you right now. Need nore, ask away but supply enough info so I can image it in MY mind.
