I'm working with an Ambra Pentium 90, circa 1994, 32MB
RAM and 2 hard drives (2GB and 8GB, partitioned) and it's
driving me nuts! Sometime in its life, the original
BIOS has been replaced with something called EZ BIOS
from MicroHouse International (a freebie, I suspect).
I don't know much about computer innards, but I'm
wondering if a BIOS upgrade might solve my problem.
When I'm online, the computer takes an age to stop
r/w to the hard drive (light flashes forever) and
it feels like the whole system is clogged with
molasses. Any suggestions?
