I’m trying to revive an old machine to donate to a friend, but win. 95 will not boot. Internal batt. was dead so it was replaced, along with batt. holder(broken) so now it keeps time correctly.
At start up window hangs at post screen as follows:
Award Modular BIOS v4.51PG.
Copywright (C) 1984-97, Award software, Inc.
p5tx-Bpro Ver2.0 07/17/97
Pentium-MMX- cpu at 200MHz
Memory test : 98304 OK
Award Plug and Play BIOS Extension v1.OA
Detects HHD Primary Master
Primary Slave none
HDD Secondary Master Toshiba CD- Rom
Secondary Slave none
Initializing Plug and Play Cards….
Card-01 Creative SB AWE-64 PnP
Cursor stops here and just blinks.
I’ve opened the BIOS and all setting are whats’ in the mainboard user’s manual, cleared the CMOS with the jumper,tried changing the boot sequence..nothing??
It won’t boot from the original CD, or a boot floppy,(tried the floppy in a different machine and it works)
Any suggestions would be appreicated
Thanks in advance
