Question about PC Desktops
Dell Dimension 9100
Unable to access cmos, the os anything. Keyboard and mouse work on other computers fine. No ps/2 ports, bluetooth, ir or serial ports. The hd is a Serial ATA and I only have older ide machines with no converter cable for SATA. to try and recover the drive. This happened after a power failure and the computer was in hibernation mode. Any ideas?
If the BIOS it self is not opening means that it is not getting started,at the timing of power startup it just goes off with out showing anything the issue might be with the BIOS cell check that out otherwise there might be any issue with the BIOS than u have to consult with the vendor,
Now in second case where it is not working after the POST is done than might be the first boot sector has gone faulty you have to reinstall the OS.
ANd in if case it is giving a long beep before shutting down the issue might be with RAM check that out.
Inshort the issue might be with three things
1) BIOS cell (change the bios cell)
2) BIOS itself (consult vendor)
3) OS (Reinstall the OS)
4) RAM (Swap or change the RAM)
PLz do rate incase this info is important or giving u any benifit it helps us...
