: : Hello, Cousin!

: : I, too, have just upgraded from an ancient mother board. It was a slow 486, now it's a 1.2 gigahertz volcano of computing power. Or would be, if I could run it.

: : Since installation, the A: dirve is there, or it isn't there. When it's icon is not there, opening My Computer results in a continuous tone and a frozen machine. The CD-ROM doesn't show up at all, ever. I spend more time in Safe Mode than I care to. Sometimes the machine doesn't boot at all with a Windows protection error and the suggestion that I restart.

: : I simmer with aggravation.

: : I hesitate to use FDISK/MBR because I don't want to corrupt the boot record and/or lose all my hard disk's data. If I could find the original floppy with EZ_BIOS I'd be happier. I might manage to uninstall the program. I'm looking at http://www.westerndigital.com/service/ftp/drives.html right now to try and uncover useful software... sitting at the public library computer! Western Digital has replaced EZ-BIOS with their "Data Lifeguard" suite of programs. Perhaps these will solve our mutual problems. Give them a look-see.

: : As for EZ-BIOS, Homer Simpson said it best: "D'OH!"

: : Good luck,

: : Aaron

: : : i just put in a new motherboard and processor... however, my floppy drive doesn't seem to read anything and my CD-ROM drive just wasn't detected after that. I can tell the floppy is working since i can see it spinning when i try reading a disk, but it still won't read anything and all i get when i stick the floppy in is a popup asking me to format the disk, and (when 'OK' is clicked on) i get a popup telling me that a perfectly fine disk can't be read.

: : : i'm desperate for some help here... could my having EZ-BIOS (due to my previous ancient motherboard) have something to do with this? if so, how do i get rid of ez-bios altogether?

: Hi, guys,

: I'm not sure if this'll help, but Maxtor drives use EZ-BIOS...the Maxblast Plus download has something in its diagnostics program to remove EZ-BIOS. Also, you might check out these links, they at least explain how to restore a master boot record when a drive was installed with Maxblast. Good luck: Title: Restoring a Master Boot Record (MBR) using MaxBlast Plus.
