    Hello All,
    I have a spare computer that i'am trying to get going. I bought it on yahoo auctions and had a few upgrades done. Before i got it i had 128mb of ram installed, Bios updated, an 800mhz duron processor. Well to make a long story short when i turn it on it goes into bio's, Ok. I go to install an operating system and get a " invalid system disk". No matter what i put in the floppy or the cd-rom i keep getting this message. I installed a new battery and tried new ram, Just in case, Tried a different floppy, cd-rom, HD. I started unhooking stuff thinking maybe. No help. So i was thinking maybe i could go to the motherboard's web site and see if i was missing anything. Of course my luck no name on the board, No number's except E206922 Ps/1. I took the motherboard out to see if it were on the bottom, Nothing there either. Motherboard is gold in color, was made in china. has built in sound and video,2 slots for pci, 2 sd-ram slot's, 2 usb ports on the back. Can someone please help me with this problem?

    Thank You,
    E J

    Or you can use Sisoft Sandra or Belarc Adviser (both free) which will tell you everything you need to know on pc.

    Go into your bios and ensure that the floppy drive is set to boot first.
    If you are installing the OS directly from the CD, then make the Rom drive the first boot device.
