    Where is your motherboard manual? you should set your jumper to clear CMOS.

    Hi there,
    My friend played with the jumper last nite to reset everything & made a few minor alterations to the settings i had done myself.A few strange characters came on screen @ one stage.Scandisk took an absolute age & has found many errors in the root directory / file allocation tables etc etc.All sorts of things seem to have been corrupted or damaged somewhere along the line.It is fixing them as it goes though.I have no manual,pc was second hand gift from my mother.Iam aiming to get a workable unit that i can mess with it usin xp to explore.I dont mind formatting it again if need be-all good experiance etc etc.

    I think at this stage, it might help all round if you were to give a stage by stage account of everything you did to the PC to get it into this state.
