internal hard drive socket failed and gone

October 8, 2011 at 20:03:00
Specs: Windows XP
the internal drive controller has failed to detect a new hard drive and causes the computer to lock itself in the off state. I am trying to use an external hard drive to replace the internal and load windows to it. The HP pavillion ze4800 keeps changing the bios settings on me and will not stay on external ide setting. Please help

If the bios settings won't stay, your cmos battery may be dead.

"...will not stay on external ide setting..." ??? You mean external USB?

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
