If you can access the BIOS, I would change the settings to default, then save and exit. This may change the way your computer reacts, (example, it may enable onboard audio or video), which may not be a factor if this what you are already using, but nothing that can't be easily reversed.
I have an older machine: P2:400
Someone has tinkered with the BIOS.
When I boot up the machine,everything works fine until I enter the password. I then get a window that says there has been an error and then the screen just stops there after I click to close the program. Question: What can I do to get this straightened out. I can't even run Wipe Drive and it will not respond even to reloading Windows 98. I would sincerely appreciate your help.
