above laptop giving hdd error on startup, fi to resume then suspend to partition not found then run HDPREPEZ this utility installed intially ok os found then next start up back to same hdd error ,also noticed dosn't appear to hold bios info changes beyond first entry and rare access to os will only happen on user mode on bios for h/drive. when auto detect page for hdd is openned shows not installed, page back to standard cmos setup and this has reverted to not installed, scrambled bios?
bios string is 51-3303-001159-1111111-071595-1430-007 sorry could not find it on the list to i.d. m/board
hope you can help,
p.s. other info suspect new h/drive added sometime in the past because of size i.e. 6.1gig also was told pentium 200 put in although only reading p166 ,don't know if this has any relevance
thanks slushy(fred wilkinson)
