bios PROBLEM!!! very serious!!!! :(
Hi there ppl!
Once more i have to come here and ask for help.
THe problem is this: a few hours ago, i was installing a home network here, and i instaled a very old network adpter that windows didnīt recognized. So i tought that maby, maby it was because i didnt had all the "default" services running, like: execute: msconfig..services" and i whent there and put them all running and restarted.
Has i restart windows, after a while of it running it rebooted alone..and after that, when i it came to normal..an error appeared and it rebooted again..but this time it didnt reboot totaly..
sometimes it crashed, others didnīt appered anything..and then the screen itīs kinda weird with letters that disappear. The following message appeared when i tried with another hardrive: "BIOS DISABLED"
When i try to run it, at the start of the WIndows XP PRofessional start screen ( the first one..the black one ) it appears evrything stupid like..all mixed up or what..
i donīt know what to do, please can someone help me out here, it is very urgent and i have very very important data on the hardrive!!!
Thanx for the comprehension ppl!!!

Very old network adapter... Hmmm... Old Stuff requires more electric power that new stuff. I suggest that you remove the adapter and check the Internet for a driver for this adapter for Windows XP. If no drivers are found, don't install it. That my 2 cents!
