Guess I’ll try Kerry’s suggestion tomorrow and see what happens.
Is there some way tomorrow evening I can get back in touch with one of you to help me do the CMOS thing and reset the BIOS…I’ve NEVER done that but am a willing learner…as long as I have a someone like you guys around I won’t have any worries doing it. I know about the CMOS battery…and the jumper…it’sjust that I’ve never done that before.
Bob, I don’t recall making any changes in my BIOS when I was getting this newbuild up and running…but what do I know? I wouldn’t know what to set…but I did take a picture of each BIOS window and saved it…just in case. That might help.
Hope to see you guys tomorrow evening…I have 3 grandkids playing baseball and soccer tomorrow…and they may spend the night (look out!!!).
I may have to wait until Sunday evening…how can I get in touch with you Kerry56 and/or Bob on Sunday evening…or can I?
P.S. I turned the computer off again and left it off about 2 minutes but nothing changed except as I said, now it’s showing both internal SATA HDD’s…one as Master and one as Slave…doesn’t show any errors…but it’s still froze up. Those keys aren’t working yet either.
Just a thought, could I have shorted the two USB connector as I was attempting to plug in my mp3 player…if so, could that have cause this problem?
And, how about the fact that my new (installed software and did a backup of my documents today for the first time)…and it was set to do another backup at 10 PM tonight…maybe that new external Maxtor caused the problem…such a conicidence it seems…that’s way it makes me wonder, did I have the problem right at 10 PM and sometime didn’t like that happening???
