I can try and suggest you check the cables from you CD-ROM, any sort of damage the CD might have. Or then again, if your Hard Drive is SATA connected, then you'll need to load the SATA controler (F6 on the windows instalation) And, in last case, either upgrade your bios or try a different CD-ROM drive unit. But I would defenatly put my money on the cables.

I don't think that you need a bios upgrade for a 'virus' infection - they generally don't go there, as modifications to the flash memory can be tricky and difficult without knowing the flash type; viruses generally affect OS areas as being much easier.

Motherboard specification not available.


Are you uning the recovery CD or a new OS?

A new Os (XP) will allow the second drive even if the old one will not. Of course you can always add a USB hard drive and a USB PCI card to make it all work. What are you using this pc for seems a little old for todays applications. Suggestion If your going to use this that you Replace the main hard drive with a 120GB or larger, new video card at least 256MB if not 512 and at least 1 gig of memory as I believe it will only take a max of 1 gig. you cannot use vista as it requires more resources than this Pc can give to support the OS. you may want to try XP LITE as well one you get XP installed to speed it up a bit!

My computer does not boot


No bios no post and no power lights on disk drives means hardware problem.

Either call a technician or try the following if you feel you can do it yourself, beware , there is always risk of damaging your PC on DIY.

unplug the computer, open PC and remove all plugs and internal and external devices, leaving only a minimal set of devices.

Start the motherboard with only Power adapter , one RAM module, and video card and screen connected. Unplug all disks and external devices, remove all pci cards.

If it still does not start take it to a repair shop, you may need to replace power supply, motherboard or ram.

I have a compaq with a 90 gig hard drive, at presenr I am running 384 bytes of RAM. How much will this PC safely handle?


Depends! The amount of RAM has nothing to do with capacity of the hard drive. If your motherboard is a P3, it probably has to memory slots that will handle 256mb each (512 total). It sounds like you have a 128mm chip and a 256mb chip installed now. I won't even attempt to run XP with less than 256mb of RAM. You can run XP with 128mb, but not very well. With Windows XP SP2, you will have to have at least 256MB. Most P4 or newer computers use DDR RAM wich can be bought at larger capacity (ie 1000MB).
