Hey, Thanks for the timely response Ben,sounds reasonable...
The only problem is that for some reason certain parts of the BIOS is locked on this old Compaq Presario 2266...
Specifically the PnP OS settings..I think that the culprit is that a user password is set, but not for password on boot..??
I've tried reformatting the measly 4G HDD about 4 times now to no avail...The BIOS settings just won't reset...What to do?
On a positive note, The IRQ settings for the pci slots are configurable...=[[
Any advice???
Thanks in advance...
