I am repairing a Gateway P120, with BIOS 1.00.11.BSOT. The problem is that the machine does not boot.
It finds memory ok, finds hard disk (Maxtor 84000A6)
and the CD-ROM, also floppy, but after that
it sits and does nothing except flashing the
cursor in the lower right corner. Any thoughts -- I am at the end of my knowledge?????? I have tried flipping the boot recovery jumper and re-flashing the bios -- but it doesn't seem to take. The BIOS settings for the hard drive seem to be ok (cylinders, heads, sectors), boot sequence is set to HDD first.
