Boot Disc Failure, another one....
« on: January 06, 2011, 11:24 »
This has been happening to my Medion for a while now, but I couldn't be bothered fixing it.

It has been booting from the CD okay, till I took the CD out to put another one in for the printer. I did an XP repair and lost a few things.....

I took the printer CD out and closed the ROM door, forgot about the booting problem, now I can't get the damned door open again and it won't boot without it.

Isn't there a 'paper clip' release hole in the drawer front, Kate?

Luckily we had one, now it's part of our PC repair kit.

Michael had just arrived home and he was declaring it ....... well, shall we say, much like our cricket team.
