hummm. so the second you power up it asks for a password? no post or anything? thats fuxoring strange. i was gonna bust out ERD commander to kick the computers ass but if you cant even get it to boot to a floppy then forget it.
yup, takes about a second or two. sounds like Big Guns...yikes!
i'm sure it's something good but, that one flew over my head.
havn't got a clue about the Commander. i'll look it up...thanks
If you format that partition, you'll need a system restore disk to put it back.
yup, yup, was prepared for that...I wiped it clean...It had a ten gig partition for the mfr install, twenty for the OS, and the remainder for music. Let me know if you have any other suggestions cause i'm still stuck between a rock and a hard place.
BTW: my uncle knows someone with the same make and model. He's telling me that his friends LCD display blacked out on him, and will be calling me back.
Just called the other guy needin' a display and he said it's going to cost him $713.75 locally to have it replaced. So I told him about my lappy, and he says he ain't gonna wait a few more weeks for his Dell part to come in. I think he's getting the run around, as usual. Anyway, we closed a deal for a decent price, i'll be changing out his display, upping the 30GBHD to a 60, and swapping the GPU. I'm relieved to know that my headaches have been sold.
no Dell...no problem
