I have had this laptop around for a long time. Its hard drive died many years and has been shelved since. I recently purchased a new hard drive to get it going again as I want to toss it in the garage.
It originally came with a 4 gig HD and loaded with Win98. The new drive I purchased (both IDE units) is a 20 gig and I loaded XP via another computer when the CPi didn't "see" the new drive, I thought maybe preloading it would help, guess not.
I have checked the BIOS and is has A14 which is the newest (2002) listed on Dells site.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would like to get it going as this was the only thing wrong with it, and hate to toss it out.
