I have an old Windows 95-era IBM Aptiva computer (Model 2161-C9X) currently running Windows ME. Recently, however, I received a new computer and so I planned to recycle the Aptiva. Thus I tried wiping the hard drive with Active @KillDisk, although I couldn't figure out how to run the program properly so I gave up. Later on, I figured I'd try wiping the hard drive again but this time I was unable to advance past the Motherboard start up screen. Instead of Windows ME booting up, I heard two beeps and then got this message:
IBM SurePath Setup Utility
POST Statup Error(s)
The following error(s) were detected when the system was started:
1762 Configuration Change Has Occured
Select One Of the following options:
Continue with setup utility.
Exit the setup utility.
Regardless of which option I selected, I eventually was lead to this screen. When I then inserted a floppy disk and pressed F1, I heard a beep and the screen blinked but nothing else happened.
I don't think the error is due to my trying to run Active @KillDisk because I don't think I ran successfully. But I don't know what else it could be...
