Yeah, the BIOS did change I believe they were 1.10 now the BIOS are A05. From what I have read for this machine running this Window A05 is the correct BIOS.
I feel like I've done everything I can think of to get this thing up and running except change the battery, which is what I'm going to do next.
When the system comes up, I can take option F2 to get to the setup utility, when I do that it's not showing a hard drive in the primary but in the secondary, does that tell you anything that may help?
If the new battery doesn't work, the only other things I can think of is either the RAM or the motherboard, but that doesn't make any sense either due to the system getting all the way to the Windows XP screen?
Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!!
