My daughters PC has had it so I've taken the hard drive out with a view to putting it in an old Compaq Deskpro 2000 5200MMX. The Deskpro works fine with a Maxtor hard drive (C: 1.17 Gb, D: 1.8 Gb)running Windows ME and 384 Mb of memory.The disc I want to put in is a Fujitsu whcih I think is about 40Gb. Knowing the original Compaq was limited to 2Gb per drive, with the error message I received with the new drive (1790 disk 0 error)and form whatI've read on various site, I think I need to update the BIOS. Is this the case and if so - help. Can anyone tell me which download I need, wher to get it, what to do etc? Feel free to email me direct. Thanks George B
