Hard disk reporting possible physical errors so I've bought a new one. Bios too old for the 80gb Maxtor ATA/133 HDD I got. Went to the Gigabyte site and did a search on th4e GA-6BXC and got http://tw.giga-byte.com/Motherboard/Support/BIOS/BIOS_GA-6BXC.htm.
I downloaded the latest bios and used the flash utility from http://tw.giga-byte.com/MotherBoard/FileList/NewTech/tech_a_bios.htm.
My MB is now not working. Luckily I had this machine around so swapped the HD and video card over and, after a few hours of problems, am now on the net again but not sure as to how long.
I need the other machine to run a hard disk so I can reinstall my system and files to the new one and compare before the one with possible faults decides to give up.
Any hope with the recovery will be seriously appreciated.
