Thanks for all the help, feeling very positive! Going to try later today.
After getting to post screen I am told to run setup utility for a "floppy diskette seek error" and unset time. After hitting f2 to run the utility the response is I cannot use video mode 107.

Well, thanks for the help my PC is useable now.

As a sidenote the floppy disk error is something different right? As I have had through my pc's lifespan

Hello,
Floppy disk error is different and I don't think we would be using now-a-days. You can go to BIOS and disable the floppy drive option --> Save the settings and exist from BIOS.
Good Luck

Hello,

Try this 1

It might be due to one of your device in your PC is having problem in

getting detected during the POST. When you switch ON your laptop, click

on the "Tab" key. You can see the POST screen. Find the device which is

taking much time in getting detected.

Also make sure that that first boot device is set to your "Hard Drive" in your

BIOS settings.

Good Luck
