|PC crashed the night before going away for Christmas - screen scrambled up and then it would not re-boot.|
Just back tonight and followed a couple of tips from an IT friend, re-seated the memory and the VGA/Display card.
Surprisingly that worked to an extent - however the message " Diskette Drive 0 Seek failure" came up - it suggested running setup via F2 which I did, changing the date to the current one from Jan 1 2003.
Exiting setup, "Boot from Cd:" came up, pressing enter brought up the boot manager and selecting windows Vista produced a normal startup
Lots of drivers were then reinstalled and as far as I can see the PC is working normally.
When I reboot, the same error comes up, F1 then produces same 'boot from CD', etc then runs normally
Can anyone suggest what is wrong and how to correct this error? (I have no diskette drives, just a CD/DVD drive which is running normally)
