|I have an old AST 486SX/25. My husband would like to get the files off of this computer, but when I turn it on, this is what first shows up on the screen:|
AST Computer LC II BIOS Rel. 1.00
Copyright AST Research, Inc. 1993
Then it continues starting up, and when it's done starting this is what remains on the screen:
and then a flashing cursor. It just stays like this. It seems I remember having to enter a long string after the flashing cursor, something with a D in it. It's been over 15 years!! Any ideas, anyone, on how to get into this machine and access files? It has a floppy drive and a CD drive. I can access system setup by ctrl/alt/esc, but I don't know what I'm doing once I get in there.
Thanks for any help you can give!
P.S. I know info posted shows it's got a windows xp os, but it doesn't, same with the RAM, that's my own computer here that I'm posting with.
