(I'm using my room mate's comp)
I an running windows xp on a P4 intel motherboard with 2 maxtor hard drives, a cd rom and a dvd player.
I turned on my computer yesterday and it woudn't run. At some point during the boot up it stops and says "drive not ready-process halted" or something or other. if i try to reboot at that point it sends me to the bios settings screen and ther is a line that says "cmos/gpnv checksum bad"
if I hit F1, the IDE config says my master and slave drives are not installed!!
What the hell is wrong? my floppy disk drive doesn't seem to be online either.
Does anyone know of a good place downtown or nearby where I can take my comp to for speedy service? i'm a student and can't go for very long without my computer. thanks in advance,
