    I have a really old computer Pentium II to be exact and of course something had to go wrong on me. it was the bios settings. It is a PhoenixBIOS 4.0 Release 6.0.A102 and these following message come up when i turn it on.

    ERROR
    02B0 : Diskette Drive A error

    ERROR
    Invalid system Configuration data - run configuration utility

    ERROR
    Warning : IRQ not configured PCI network controller
    Bus : 00, Device : 03, Function : 00

    ERROR
    Warning : IRQ not configured PCI display controller
    Bus : 00, Device : 09, Function : 00

    Manually assiging IRQS to PCI slots in the system BIOS do not affect how windows handles the hardware. microsoft recommends that you start the plug and play to no or disabled in the bios. If you need to manually assign IRQS addresses through the BIOS to a device on a ACPI board you have to re install windows.

    I would install a new cmos battery. When you change the battery, also move the clear cmos jumper to the clear position and then back to the normal position. After you have done this, power on the system and enter the bios. Load defaults, set time and date [if necessary] save settings and restart.

    Yes, the P2 is nearing 10 years old now and any board supporting it just about as old. It is very conceivable that your cmos battery is low / failed. A new one will only cost a few dollars so it is a cheap test.

    If the battery and reset cmos does not fix the problem, I would not put any more time or money into something as old as a P2.

    Oh well i guess i will have to try putting a new battery in but i won't spend anymore time or money on it. It all seems a bit pointless.

    P.S I tried to default the setting but the same message came up.:eek:
