Hey, Thanx for tour reply. I got to the point where the computer was supposed to say,press any key to boot from CD hit any key to proceed.and It did'nt do that it said to place diskette into drive a:/ . then I ctrl alt deleted and hit del. and it took me back to where I was.So I checked to make sure that the disk drive was still running first before the hard drive and that the right master or slave connection was chosen. I tried a whole bunch of different combo's and nothing. The computer is a dell dimention l 933 r but the 2 256 mb memory sticks and the video card came from my old gateway. Hell it did'nt matter anyway they were built the same year. So do I punt this thing into the lake or WHAT ?
Thx again Chuck,
