Question about Computers & Internet
Posted by Anonymous on
Yep, you've found Comcrap's deep dark secret. On the older ones, laptops especially, the bios file is on the hard drive,not the board! So if you re-formatted, you really messed up. You'll have to beg Compaq & fight with support until they release thier holy grail, the bios file, which is different on each pc. Also you need the version you can install on the drive BEFORE you install it into the pc & re-install windows. No,I've never succeded in doing this & after way too much time spent on trying to make an old pc work I junked it like almost every Comcrap I get. HP's just as bad & if I told you the recent story of my encounter with thier support that ended 3 days later with the head of production calling me, you'ld be laughing & maybe crying after. BTW HP & Compaq are the same company & have been since the early '90's. Hope this helps..kinda doubt it.
