Need some help please...
I talked to a friend of mine yesterday and
He told me He was asked to replace the battery in an old computer. (That was someone diagnosis)
The problem, according to him, is that the computer doesn't load(recognize) the HD nor the floppy drive
at startup, He has to do that through the setup, always since a
few weeks ago.
When he enters the setup, the floppy drive says 5 1/4, instead of 3 1/2.
Everytime the computer boots up, that has to be done in order for it to start decently.
My question is:
Is the battery really the problem? or could it be something else?
If anyone can help me out with this I'll appreciate it.
