Thank you for your suggestions and a prompt to explore further.
I am sorry for the late response.
Re. Jumpers:Yes I noted the jumpers before proceeding.
Re. Motherboard. I have not seen any maker's name or any other indication on the M/B to give me any clues of its Manufacturer, although this quest has lost its importance.
When I switch the computer on it gives one bleep; as it did, when in its healthy state. Then it goes into a routine of giving out all the data, which it did, when it was working and was switched off without going through proper shutting down procedure.
It goes on to show :
System configuration details.
CUp Type: AMD - K6 -2
Base Memory: 640K
Going into verifying DMI Pool Data...
and then shows:
DISK BOOT FAILURE INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER.
I have not got the XP disk which was loaded on this computer. I have xp operating system disk of my other Computer, which was bought later, though I do not use xp (home) on the second PC anymore because I have updated it to the Professional XP.
So the question now is: How do I get the said computer to work?
Do I buy a new xp disk or use my disk which I have? Once using the new disk (if required) how I load it on the hard drive as it permits no access to it?
I tried the disk I have, and ended up with a black screen with a cursor blinking on the top left hand corner.
Will be grateful for any helpful suggestions.
