Question about Computers & Internet
Posted by Anonymous on
Nothing, first try the disk in a working pc & see if it auto-runs in windows,if it does then try a different ribbon cable on the cd drive. If it doesn't then the disk is dirty or damaged. Also, not accusing you but windows 2000 is probably the most burned copy of windows around. If this is the case, go to whoever you got the disk from & tell them to re-burn it at 4x if possible but no faster than 6x, then the disk will work. As far as the bus speed is concerned(the jumpers), if the processor is a 100mhz, that's all the faster it will operate. Especially on older pentiums,which it sounds like you have. Now the processors will go to a slower speed, like 166 to 100. Keep in mind when switching cpu's you must set the jumper to the matching or slower speed or it will not post. Also, that speed is half what the actual clock is, meaning, 100 is 200,133 is 266, & 166 is 333 mhz. So if it's a socket 7 or 380 board, you can run an AMD or Cyrix cpu instead of the pentium & use whatever speed you'ld like because AMD products back then didn't lock the multipliers. Also on those older boards, some won't run certain ram speeds, like if the board has 100mhz ram it may not like 133 much. Ram wasn't very backward compatible back then.

Tips for a great answer:
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press delete to enter setup
Press and hold delete during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
(note after you have loaded the operating system you must go back and change the first boot device to your hard drive)
hope this helps
