Question about MSI Computers & Internet
My MSI P6NGM-based system stopped working.--
Wife turned off the power switch, and now the old Hard Drive has a capacity of ZERO :-).
I attempted to install a new HDD--
On startup, I get AMI BIOS error code of 2 short beeps--Parity problem too?? HOWEVER, I am able to boot from my Linux/Ubuntu 9.04 DVD. I was able to format a new SATA HDD in Ubuntu. When running from the DVD, I can browse the new HDD, and copy files from it. However, it will not boot from the Hard drive.
Any ideas? Might my BIOS be corrupted?
Parity is a memory ( Ram problem ) try removing 1 Stick. or changing it into another slot. if you suspect Bios. remove power cable. locate The CMOS Battery. remove for 10-15 seconds, And replace it. this will reset the bios to it,s default settings. you,ll know if your asked on boot-up to run setup to change time/date.
