    When i turn my computer on, it will load the bios and then wont recognize either of my two hard drives. When i pop some disks in, it will say "loading windows 98" and then give me an A:>

    what to do????

    would a boot disk be useful?:(

    Hi MaErkElE, welcome to TSG.

    There is an operating system on the computer, correct? And it has worked before?

    Can you enter the bios and check to see if the hard drives are showing up there?

    There is an os, windows 98 and it was working fine until the computer shut itself down during little bro's game of unreal.

    i went into the bios setup and there was one option, however, when i made it the master hard drive, it did nothing

    i figure that it must be some fried hardware, but what would it be?
