Need Help with BIOS

  1. Hi

    I use my computer for recording and yesterday I was doing some violin recording and my interface which uses firewire got unplugged. I plugged it back in and all a sudden my computer does not want to recognize it. I thought it was the interface so I went to buy another one. I came home plugged the new interface in and it was not that. I thought it was the firewire cable so I went to bestbuy and bought another cable came home plugged it in and my pc sitll did not recognize it. So finally I thought maybe my firewire on the board shorted out or something so I went to best buy returned the cable for a firewire chip. I got home installed it in my pc and still not picking up either of my interfaces.

    So I thought there was some setting that disabled that from being picked up so I decided to finally re-boot my pc. After I did that It loaded up I installed all the proper drivers from a dvd that came with my pc. Once I did all that I loaded the software and drivers for my interface. I plugged it in and still nothing!

    So I thought it was a BIOS problem. I read on the internet that you could use the Reset Configuration Data and thought maybe that would hopefully do something. So I did that and now when my pc loads it says "Missing Operating System". So I got out my windows Vista restoration disk and when that loads it says No Drives Detected

    Wow, you are just getting in deeper and deeper. It would help to have some information about your PC. Not all BIOs are the same. May we have some specs?
