i don't know what is wrong, my computer turns on, POSTs, but doesn't boot my HDD, i don't know what the problem is, if it is my BIOS, then i need a new computer (which i can't afford right now), if it's something else then, i might be able to fix it.


my computer just stays on my manufacturers logo, it won't o any farther than that.



SPECS: Packard Bell NEC Ready 9945, 8GB HDD windows 2000 & Windows98SE (4Gigs each), 80GB HDD Windows XP Professional, 256MB RAM, MS-6156 MOBO.

Did you try reseting the bios with motherboard jumper/battery

Can you access the bios?
